David and Goliath is an awesome book, packed with information, after reading this book Malcolm Gladwell is my favorite author. This book talked about how some of the biggest disadvantages can turn into the greatest advantages. This book goes into the lives of various people that were faced with biggest disadvantages and made them into advantages. Some of the people had awful upbringings, some of the people grew up with dyslexia and were faced with the problem of not being able to read. Malcolm Gladwell almost makes you ask yourself, could I be more successful if I were dyslexic.Next, I highly recommend this book. It's probably my favorite book of all time, although Malcolm Gladwell throws a lot of information at you, you are able to retain it all. This book makes me think about certain situations in my life a lot more. Like should I take certain risks and should I put myself out there. This is a great book I highly recommend it to anyone. While this is not my favorite of Gladwell's writing, his books and articles are always interesting to read. He gets a fair amount of criticism for not being scientifically rigorous but from my viewpoint he is not trying to wear the mantle of a scientist. He is trying to get us to look at things from another perspective and to get us to debate (if only with ourselves) commonly held beliefs. I think he succeeds - I have a broader view after reading his work.
Almost as boring as Ernest Hemingway's "For Whom the Bell Tolls". I'm disappointed.
I loved this book. I highly recommend taking the time to read it.
Not quite 3 stars, flagging in the middle.
Another amazing book.
