David and Goliath is the dazzling and provocative new book from Malcolm Gladwell, best-selling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw. Why do underdogs succeed so much more than we expect? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In David and Goliath Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey through the hidden dynamics that shape the balance of power between the small and the mighty.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Element to be better than the print version?

I found that listening to The Element was much more engaging than if I would have read it myself, because Sir Ken Robinson has such a great oratory gift.
