David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm GladwellIn his #1 bestselling books The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell has explored the ways we understand and change our world. Now he looks at the complex and surprising ways the weak can defeat the strong, 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. Drawing upon examples from the world of business, sports, culture, cutting-edge psychology, and an array of unforgettable characters around the world, David and Goliath is in many ways the most practical and provocative book Malcolm Gladwell has ever written.

David and Goliath: truth or legend?
Updated August 04, Archaeologists are putting some flesh on the bones of the David and Goliath myth by shifting through layers of earth at the site in the Holy Land. While little physical evidence has ever been found to support the 3,year-old biblical story of David and Goliath, a team from Israel and Australia has been excavating 50 kilometres from Jerusalem in the city of Tell es-Safi, where Goliath was supposedly born. According to the bible, Goliath stood around three metres tall and lived in the 10th century BC in the ancient city of Gath, which is now modern day Tell es-Safi. It is one of the most enduring battles in history: the story of a simple shepherd boy who slays a Philistine giant and goes on to become king. But short of finding his bronze armour or a skull with a pebble-sized hole, historians may never prove that Goliath ever existed.
King David, Goliath, the Valley of Elah—are the people, places, and events of 1 Samuel 17 real, or is the story just a myth? Some people wonder if the account about David and Goliath is true history or just myth. Did such a doubt cross your.

It's true: Great leaders see the future differently. However, when I wrote about that recently, I learned that I might have taken the wrong lesson from one of my examples. Want to contact me or suggest an idea for a future column? Let me know. Among the many things that the greatest leaders seem to understand better is that the idea of an underdog beating a giant isn't an exception.
