Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

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.

Review

"Truly intriguing and inspiring." Los Angeles Times

Review

"Provocative....David and Goliath is a lean, consuming read." San Francisco Chronicle

Review

"As always, Gladwell's sweep is breathtaking and thought-provoking." New York Times

Review

"Fascinating....Gladwell is a master of synthesis. This perennially bestselling author prides himself on radical re-thinking and urges the rest of us to follow suit." Washington Post

Review

"What propels the book, like all of Gladwell's writing, is his intoxicating brand of storytelling. He is the master of mixing familiar elements with surprise counter-intuitions, and then seasoning with a sprinkling of scientific evidence....Gladwell is a master craftsman, an outlier amongst authors." Huffington Post

Review

"Gladwell's most provocative book yet. David and Goliath challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, drawing upon history, psychology, and powerful narrative talent to rethink how we view the world around us and how to deal with the challenges life throws at us." Columbus Dispatch

Review

"Gladwell has made a career out of questioning conventional wisdom, and here he examines the allegedly unlikely triumph of the weak over the mighty and shows it's not so unlikely after all. 4 stars." People Magazine

Review

"Engrossing....Gladwell's singular gift is animating the experience of his subjects. He has an uncanny ability to simplify without being simplistic: clean and vivid Strunk and White prose in the service of peerless storytelling." Seattle Times

Review

"Contemporary society can't escape history when Malcolm Gladwell explains the world as he does with David and Goliath." St. Louis Post-Dispatch
