Book Review: David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

In his newest book, David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell takes this familiar, age-old story and provides a fresh perspective from which we can all learn.  He presents us with David, having a disadvantage against Goliath; but perhaps a desirable one.  In compensating for David’s perceived weaknesses, he focuses more on his strengths—his God and his sling.

Gladwell points out this truth: sometimes what is learned out of necessity can be more powerful than what is learned easily.  In short, one lesson we can learn from the life of David is this: “Conventions are made to be challenged.”
