David and Goliath

Author : Malcolm Gladwell

Genre : Inspirational

If you’ve read any of Malcolm Gladwell’s books, you already know that he is a masterful researcher and writer who does meticulous, extensive documentation. In David and Goliath, he challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, and offers a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or suffer from a disability, or lose a parent, or experiences any number of other apparent setbacks, and arise above overwhelming odds.

It’s a book about what happens when ordinary people confront giants. He explores two ideas: “The first is that much of what we consider valuable in our world arises out of some kind of lopsided conflicts because the act of facing overwhelming odds produces greatness and beauty. And second, that we consistently get these kinds of conflicts wrong. We misread them.”

Malcolm elegantly weaves in history, psychology, and storytelling to reshape the way we think about the world around us.
