David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants –by Malcolm Gladwell

Nonfiction  / Social Commentary  

300 pages
4 Stars

This was a fun read, for the most part. Because he covers a great deal of ground, he often speaks in generalities where I would prefer specifics; but then, if he got all that specific for everyone it could easily become a 3,000 page tome instead of a 300 page one.

There are factual errors in the book, according to both some of the reviews I read, and personal observation but I'm not sure they are all that detrimental to the overall message. The book is divided into three parts, in which he tells some interesting stories with the underlying theme of rising above adversity.

Oh, and he also gives a good reason for David winning!
