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.

Survivorship bias to the max

5-6 inspiring stories, some of which are a bit of a stretch to fit the theme, and a lot of survivorship bias which is evident in the examples themselves. Nice enough listen but not a convincing argument.
