Brief review: In this well researched book the author suggests that what we consider weak may actually have an inherent strength and what we think is worthy may not be so. Using the precursor of how David beat Goliath and several other real life instances, the author makes a compelling case that a positive mindset, courage and resilience can beat the odds of adversity, disability and discrimination. The book will break some of the myths that you hold along with giving a dose of motivation and inspiration. A few stories drag but overall a good read. Malcolm Gladwell is a master writer and story teller. I would also recommend his other books 'Outliers' and 'The Tipping Point'.
