About the book

A shepherd kid felled a powerful warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling on a battlefield in ancient Palestine three thousand years ago, and the names of David and Goliath have since stood for confrontations between underdogs and giants. David's triumph was both unlikely and remarkable. He had no right to win.

Shouldn't he have?

Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages in David and Goliath, offering a fresh perspective on what it means to be discriminated against, or to cope with a disability, or to lose a parent, or to attend a mediocre school, or to suffer from any number of other seemingly insurmountable challenges.

 

Gladwell starts with the true narrative of what happened all those years ago between the giant and the shepherd child. From there, David and Goliath delves into the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, murder and the high costs of vengeance, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms, all in order to show how much of what is beautiful and important in the world emerges from what appears to be suffering and adversity.

 

David and Goliath follows in the footsteps of Gladwell's past best-sellers, The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw, by combining history, psychology, and powerful storytelling to transform our perceptions of the world.
