DAVID and GOLIATH by Malcolm Gladwell
With David and Goliath Malcolm Gladwell has done it again and written another insightful and enthralling book about human nature and what makes some us succeed and some of us not step outside of our comfort zone.
David & Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell is about underdogs, misfits and the art of battling giants. It is full real life examples that bring his points to life, and as with all Malcolm Gladwell books, his writing style is like story-telling and will keep you captivated as he expertly argues and proves why some things we view as weaknesses are in fact our strengths. Some of the weaknesses covered in this book include early life trauma, dyslexia and small versus large classroom sizes in schools.
We are talking advantages versus disadvantages, and the fact that they are not always what we expect.
The reason I include this book as a Coaching book recommendation is that it is full of life lessons and will challenge how you see yourself, and life in general. It will inspire and inform, and from this place we can but learn, and from learning comes growth. So no matter what challenges you are currently facing, David and Goliath is sure to give you a fresh perspective and ideas for how else you might overcome with strength, courage and advantage.
As always, I would to hear your views about David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell.
