david and goliathFrom the publisher:

Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then 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 have? 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, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks.

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, by Malcolm Gladwell. New York : Little, Brown and Company, 2013. 305 p. ISBN 9780316204361 (hardcover)
