David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell

When does a disadvantage become an advantage? This is main question of Malcolm Gladwell’s David and Goliath.

No one in their right mind would want their loved one to suffer. You would never wish dyslexia on your child or consider it advantageous for a child to lose a parent. But why do many successful men and women flourish from such horrible, disadvantageous circumstances? Gladwell investigates the ins and outs of advantages. He discovers how shortcomings can set up for success and certain benefits can lead to failure.

I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to Malcolm Gladwell but this another book that I could not put down. Once again Gladwell weaves together incredibly interesting stories with strong research. I simply cannot wait for his next book.
