Time, is one thing we don’t have much of. I’m not even referring to our short lives, but just time in a day. That’s why I believe we cannot waste time reading books that just aren’t very good.
Malcolm Gladwell needs no introduction. He’s the best-selling author of “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference” and “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking“, amongst others. His fifth book is appropriately title “David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants“.
A few weeks ago, on LinkedIn, I pointed to an article from The Guardian that suggested that “You are probably wrong about everything”. Bobby Duffy makes the case that what you think you know, and what the facts really are, often do not match up. Then I started reading David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s a book about Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants and already in the first chapter, a similar theme emerged.
