eBook å Underdogs Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants ê GladwellMalcolm

Why do underdogs succeed so muchthan they should? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In The concept is interesting but reading the first few chapters is honestly enough I’ll confess that I haven’t finished this book — which only happens when I am simply not interested enough to keep going This book repeats the same concepts over and over again as if you aren’t smart enough to understand the first couple of times and states it’s conclusions and ideas as if one can not draw the conclusions themselves from similar information The evidence used was mostly anecdotal or simply not the whole story — he choses situations that fit the conclusions he wants to make disregarding the complexities or ignoring the fact that only a small percentage of people have such experiences and in some cases just having incorrect information I felt as if I was hitting my head with a brick while reading it and while good points were made much of it was useless fluff and redundancies I would not recommend this book; if you want to read it a summary online will serve you just as well without wasting so much time

In DAVID AND GOLIATH Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journeDAVID AND GOLIATH Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey to u There is a particular movement throughout the chapters of this book which take you on a journey through the process of advantages versus disadvantages split into three segments Identifying vantage points identifying advantages in apparent disadvantages and the exchanges of power as they relate to advantages and disadvantages All advantages may seem to have disadvantages but there’s that meets the eye Just as World War Z highlighted mother nature’s greatest strength as its greatest weakness our seemingly disadvantageous circumstances have advantages than imagined This idea is postured in the story of David and Goliath in the Old Testament where David is a small and feeble character who stands up against the mighty giant warmonger Goliath The story ends in a twist where David defeats the giant when everyone expects the giant to win Gladwell uses this story as an invitation to a paradigm shift that we might see disadvantages in a new lightGladwell does a great job capturing plenty of true stories of people with disadvantages or in disadvantageous situations The first three chapters focus on redefining our situations followed by the next three which are cause and effect relationships how our disadvantages shape our lives for advantages followed by chapters of redefining disadvantages through uestioning what real power looks like Gladwell does a good job of interweaving these stories with data such as charts and graphs as well as historical data to defend his main idea Although Gladwell makes great points you might find his story telling to become redundant You begin to understand where the stories are going and get used to Gladwell’s style early on in the reading This is to be expected since Gladwell is a well known journalist; for he collects his thoughts thoroughly and uses a set format to write his stories Only once did I find myself uestioning Gladwell’s sources and that was on his information about Goliath’s health He only uotes one source and uses that source heavily to prove the point that Goliath had an illness in his brain that made him big and made his movements slow Other than that I appreciated his use of sourcesOverall this book is well worth reading as it can change your thinking for the better Advantages have disadvantages but disadvantages present the opportunity to discover new found advantages This is a positive message to put any underdog on top in all kinds of negative circumstances Everyone faces giants in life Like Goliath those giants call us out to battle with them on their terms but we don’t have to meet those giants on their terms Normally when we do we lose Rather we can find strengths in the greatest of weaknesses and opportunities in all kinds of situations that turn disadvantages upside down
