Sunday Book Review : David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling GiantsDavid and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The more I read Gladwell the less I like his stuff. He is a great storyteller who truly engages me as a reader, but the content feels less and less genuine each book. I read a quite a bit on neuroscience, psychology and economics. It always feels like half way through a Gladwell book I have read the book before. I think often it is because the science he uses is just a summary of a bigger work elsewhere. If you only have time or ability to read authors that are easy and summarized works of others, then I highly recommend. Otherwise, I would look to read the source material instead.
