Malcolm Gladwell, a man who was rejected by every advertising company he applied for in his early years, writes yet another bestselling book. In this book, Malcolm challenges how we think about adversities and shortcomings. In the early part of the book, he discusses the three thousand-year-old battle between David and Goliath, and describes how the small and un-skilled David defeats the powerful and almighty Goliath despite David’s disadvantages. The book is constructed in a way to help you look at personal hardships as an “advantage” and applying it into situations. It’s packed with feel-good stories, research and analysis! Check it out and read it – you’ll enjoy it, especially if you’re new to Gladwell, management and entrepreneurs.
