Review Text

  • By Dcd4adtmc on 6 December 2013

    I'm a big fan of Gladwell especially his short stories and articles in The New Yorker. David and Goliath is a compelling analogy for the world in which we live today and had the making of a great book but I feel Gladwell fell short of the book's (and the point he set out to prove) true potential.The premise that the small can take on the big and mighty and win in today's fast paced and rapidly changing world is compelling. But his book fails to inspire and that is a disappointment. The premise had been well laid out early in the book and I expected it to progress to great current day learnings but the entire book labours a point that most readers will get and agree with early on. Gladwell would then have done better to show the learnings and pitfalls of the analogy rather than spending chapter after chapter proving a point that had already been proven.Some good stories, well written and easy to read but could've delivered so much more. A decent book but from Gladwell I expected something more.3 1/2 stars.

    Love books of Malcolm Gladwell. This wasn't the best of his that I've read, but nevertheless, still fascinating insights into people and how they tick.

    As with Gladwell's previous books, David and Golliath is enjoyable to read with vivid examples and detailed descriptions. Analysis and arguments are not too deep but they don't have to be. I think the book accomplishes its goal.

    This book is a nice reminder of how to see what might be perceived weakness as the strengths they are. There's something very powerful in this idea and this book engages with it in a lively and thought provoking way.
