Synopsis
"Gladwell's most enjoyable book so far. It is a feel-good extravaganza, nourishing both heart and mind". (Financial Times). "I devoured in a single reading". (Richard E. Grant). "When you read it, you feel like you can topple giants". (Jon Ronson). What if everything we thought about power was wrong? What if, in the ancient story of the shepherd boy who topples a giant, David actually had the advantage? This thought sets Malcolm Gladwell on an extraordinary journey that takes him from art to basketball, the brain to revolutions, along the way weaving unforgettable stories of misfits, outsiders, tricksters and underdogs who have faced outsized challenges and won. With his trademark warmth, humour and gift for showing us the world through new eyes, Gladwell lets us see why the powerful aren't always what we think they are - and that some of us have more strength and purpose than we could ever imagine. "Intoxicating, powerful and morally engaged". (Guardian). "Truly intriguing and inspiring". (Los Angeles Times). "Breath-taking and thought-provoking". (The New York Times). "An energetic, counterintuitive exploration of why (and how) underdogs succeed". (Guardian, Books of the Year). "Continuing to gently but persistently blow my mind". (Lauren Laverne).
