David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell – review
Take dyslexia: Far from being a learning disability, it might just be a "desirable difficulty" that teaches those with the disorder to deal with failure — and thereby achieve career success. Losing a parent in childhood is a traumatic burden , no question — but might it also instill a resilience to life's shocks that makes you tougher than your peers? And could it be possible there's "a point at which money and resources stop making our lives better and start making them worse"? What will readers take away from David and Goliath? The takeaways from the previous books all surprised me. I put that in as a kind of throwaway little moment; I never thought anything would come of it. That experience convinced me you can't predict how people will respond to your work.
If you think you know the story of David and Goliath , think again. In his new book, "David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants," Malcolm Gladwell says most people get this famous Biblical yarn all wrong because they misunderstand who really has the upper hand. It is because of , and not despite, David's size and unorthodox choice of weapon that he is able to slay the lumbering giant. In other words, Gladwell says, most people underestimate the importance of agility and speed. The same misunderstanding happens in David vs. Goliath fights in business, which Gladwell substantiates with numerous case studies and research examples in his recently published book. And that's exactly why nimble, upstart companies, with their new solutions to old problems, often can best Goliaths.
M alcolm Gladwell's new book promises to turn your view of the world upside down. We all think we know what happened when David took on Goliath: the little guy won. Gladwell thinks we all have it wrong, and opens his new book with a retelling of that story. Our mistake is to assume it's a story about the weak beating the powerful with the help of pluck and guile and sheer blind faith. But as Gladwell points out, it was Goliath who was the vulnerable one.
