9780316285254: David and Goliath

Malcolm Gladwell's provocative new #1 bestseller -- now in paperback. Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a pebble and a sling-and ever since, the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn't have won. Or should he? In DAVID AND GOLIATH, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, suffer from a disability, lose a parent, attend a mediocre school, or endure any number of other apparent setbacks. In the tradition of Gladwell's previous bestsellers-The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw-DAVID AND GOLIATH draws upon history, psychology and powerful story-telling to reshape the way we think of the world around us.

Book Description Hachette Book Group USA, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Gladwell s most enjoyable book so far. It is a feel-good extravaganza, nourishing both heart and mind . (Financial Times). I devoured in a single reading . (Richard E. Grant). When you read it, you feel like you can topple giants . (Jon Ronson). What if everything we thought about power was wrong? What if, in the ancient story of the shepherd boy who topples a giant, David actually had the advantage? This thought sets Malcolm Gladwell on an extraordinary journey that takes him from art to basketball, the brain to revolutions, along the way weaving unforgettable stories of misfits, outsiders, tricksters and underdogs who have faced outsized challenges and won. With his trademark warmth, humour and gift for showing us the world through new eyes, Gladwell lets us see why the powerful aren t always what we think they are - and that some of us have more strength and purpose than we could ever imagine. Intoxicating, powerful and morally engaged . (Guardian). Bookseller Inventory # LIB9780316285254

Publisher/Verlag: Back Bay Books | Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants | Malcolm Gladwell, the no1 bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw, offers his most provocative - and dazzling - -book yet.Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine , a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn't have won. Or should he have?
