  • "This book uncovers the hidden rules that shape the balance between the weak and the mighty and the powerful and the dispossessed. In it the author challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. He begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy (David and Goliath) those many years ago. From there, the book examines Northern Ireland's Troubles, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, murder and the high costs of revenge, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms, all to demonstrate how much of what is beautiful and important in the world arises from what looks like suffering and adversity.-- From book jacket."@en
  • "The author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw draws upon history, psychology, and powerful storytelling to challenge how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, and to fundamentally reshape the way we think about suffering and adversity."

  • "Uncovers the hidden rules that shape the balance between the weak and the mighty and the powerful and the dispossessed. Why do underdogs succeed so much more than they should? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In David and Goliath Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey to uncover the hidden dynamics that shape the balance of power between the small and the mighty. From the conflict in Northern Ireland and Vietnam, through the tactics of civil rights leaders and the problem of privilege, Gladwell demonstrates how terribly we misunderstand the true meaning of advantage and disadvantage. When is a traumatic childhood a good thing? How can a disability leave someone better off? And do you really want your child to go to the best school he or she can get into?"
  • "Hauptbeschreibung Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das E-Book inklusive! Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist. Gladwells hintersinniges Plädoyer für das Große im."

  • "Drawing upon examples from the world of business, sports, culture, cutting-edge psychology and an array of unforgettable characters around the world, the author of The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers looks at the complex and surprising ways in which the weak can defeat the strong, how the small can match up against the giant, and how our goals (often culturally determined) can make a huge difference in our ultimate sense of success."@en

  • "What if everything we thought about power was wrong? What if, in the ancient story of the shepherd boy who topples a giant, David actually had the advantage? This thought sets Malcolm Gladwell on an extraordinary journey that takes him from art to basketball, the brain to revolutions, along the way weaving unforgettable stories of misfits, outsiders, tricksters and underdogs who have faced outsized challenges and won. With his trademark warmth, humour and gift for showing us the world through new eyes, Gladwell lets us see why the powerful aren't always what we think they are - and that some of us have more strength and purpose than we could ever imagine."@en

Gladwell parte de la historia real de lo que sucedió hace siglos entre el gigante y el pastor. Desde ahí, David y Goliat analiza el conflicto de Irlanda del Norte, la mente de los investigadores del cáncer y la de los líderes de los derechos civiles, el alto precio de la venganza y la dinámica de las clases que obtienen buenos resultados, y de las que no, para demostrar cuánto de lo que hay de bello y de importante en el mundo se origina en el sufrimiento y en la adversidad. En la tradición de sus anteriores best sellers Inteligencia intuitiva, La clave del éxito, Fueras de serie y Lo que vio el perro, Gladwell recurre a la historia, a la psicología, a la ciencia y a su maestría como narrador para dar nueva forma al modo en que concebimos el mundo que nos rodea."--Page 4 of cover."
