David and Goliath Book Review


 About the Book

In his #1 bestselling books THE TIPPING POINT, BLINK and OUTLIERS, Malcolm Gladwell has explored the ways in which we understand and change our world. Now he looks at the complex and surprising ways in which the weak can defeat the strong, how the small can match up against the giant, and how our goals (often cultural determined) can make a huge difference in our ultimate sense of success. Drawing upon examples from the world of business, sports, culture, cutting-edge psychology and an array of unforgettable characters around the world, DAVID AND GOLIATH is in many ways the most practical and provocative book Malcolm Gladwell has ever written.(Goodreads)

 My Review
This book looked so intriguing and I was fairly excited to read it. Over the chapters the author has different stories about people who have overcome the "Goliath" in their lives. The only is that this book is so detailed and jumps from one thing to the next before continuing on a story it made it difficult to read. I did not enjoy reading it after the first few chapters. I wish I could say I loved it but I did not. I have not read this author before so I can't say if this is like his other writing. I did enjoy the Biblical aspect that is woven throughout the entire book.

"I received this book from B and B Media Group for free in exchange for an honest review."
