Malcolm Gladwell, the number-one bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and offers his most provocative - and stunning - novel yet. Three thousand years ago, on a battlefield in early Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a powerful warrior with nothing more than a rock and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's triumph was unlikely and amazing. He should not have won. Or should he have? In David and Goliath , Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and minuses, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or make do with a handicap, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other clear drawbacks. Gladwell begins with the Actual story of what occured between the giant and the shepherd lad those many years past. From there, examines Northern Ireland's Troubles, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, slaying and the high prices of payback, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms - all to present how much of what is amazing and significant in the world arises from what looks like suffering and misfortune. In the tradition of Gladwell's previous best sellers, David and Goliath draws upon history, psychology, and strong storytelling to reshape the way we think about the world around us.
