David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

**Malcolm Gladwell, the #1 bestselling author of *The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers,* and *What the Dog Saw,* offers his most provocative—and dazzling—book yet.
**
Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David’s victory was improbable and miraculous. He *shouldn’t* have won.
Or should he have?
In *David and Goliath* , Malcolm Gladwell ** 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.
Gladwell begins with the *real* story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago. From there, *David and Goliath* 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.
In the tradition of Gladwell’s previous bestsellers— *The Tipping Point* , *Blink* , *Outliers* and *What the Dog Saw—* *David and Goliath* draws upon history, psychology, and powerful storytelling to reshape the way we think of the world around us.
### Review
**Praise for *Outliers* :
**
“In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today… *Outliers* is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward.” ( ** *New York Times Book Review*** ***David Leonhardt*** )
“The explosively entertaining *Outliers* might be Gladwell’s best and most useful work yet…There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: *Outliers* is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book.” ( ** *Entertainment Weekly*** ***Gregory Kirschling*** )
“No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for.” ( ** *Atlanta Journal Constitution*** )
“[An] important new book…Gladwell intelligently captures a larger tendency of thought-the growing appreciation of the power of cultural patterns, social contagions, memes…Gladwell’s social determinism is a useful corrective to the Homo economicus view of human nature.” ( ** *New York Times*** ***David Brooks*** )
“Thought-provoking, entertaining, and irresistibly debatable…[ *Outliers* ] is another winner from this agile social observer.” ( ** *Christian Science Monitor*** ***Heller McAlpin*** )
” *Outliers* is required reading for boardroom and watercooler crowds alike.” ( ** *Men’s Health*** )
“In *Outliers* , Gladwell ( *The Tipping Point* ) once again proves masterful in a genre he essentially pioneered-the book that illuminates secret patterns behind everyday phenomena.” ( ** *Publishers Weekly*** )
**Praise for *The Tipping Point* :
**
“A fascinating book that makes you see the world in a different way.” ( ** *Fortune*** )
“Gladwell’s theories could be used to run businesses more effectively, to turn products into runaway bestsellers, and perhaps most important, to alter human behavior.” ( ** *New York Times*** )
**Praise for *Blink* :**
“A real pleasure…Brims with surprising insights about our world and ourselves.” ( **Salon.com** )
“Intoxicating. Gladwell is an engaging writer and a first-rate tour guide.” ( ** *Los Angeles Times*** ***Thane Rosenbaum*** )
” *Blink* moves quickly through a series of delightful stories. Always dazzling us with fascinating information and phenomena.” ( ** *New York Times Book Review*** ***David Brooks*** )

Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong

A fly-on-the-wall account of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal – the greatest drama in modern sporting history by the New York Times cycling correspondent. As Lance Armstrong’s precipitous fall from grace continues, New York Times sports reporter Juliet Macur takes the reader behind the scenes to bring to life the astonishing twists and turns of the scandal that has rocked the world of cycling. With unprecedented access to the key players in the drama – from Armstrong’s fellow cyclists and top cycling officials to doctors, trainers and wives – Cycle of Lies reveals how Armstrong built a fortress of people around him to protect his image and upend the lives of anybody who stood in his way. As America’s fallen idol faces potential perjury charges, Cycle of Lies widens the focus to expose corruption at all levels of the sport in a thrilling, page-turning work of contemporary narrative history.

**Recensie(s)**

‘Riveting … Why did he do it? is clearly the first question begging for an answer. And How did he get away with it for so long? is another. Macur investigates both exhaustively and the result is a tale right out of ancient Greece – the demi-god with the fatal flaw’ Toronto Star ‘Macur is a fine writer and a tireless reporter’ Observer ‘Her well-researched book pays testimony to the determination of a large group of people, those used and cast aside by Armstrong, who found the courage to stand up to the bully … That he was still arrogant enough to try to get her to change the title of ‘Cycle of Lies’ speaks volumes for his self-centred nature and Macur’s determination as a journalist to stick with what she believed to be the truth’ Eastern Daily Press ‘Macur offers plenty that is new and is capable of holding your interest … Compared with the other recent Armstrong books – ‘The Secret Race’, ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ and ‘Wheelmen’ – ‘Cycle of Lies’ is the one to read if you want the whole story nailed in a clear and concise narrative … But it is also a book that can be quite subtle at times and contains moments of beauty … a rewarding read’ Podium Cafe

The Crimson Cat

When Tomi Hadley and his brother, Ren, make fun of their Japanese-born mom’s annual Setsubun bean-throwing celebrations, she’s furious. She warns them that their ridicule of her folkloric beliefs could be deadly. As if to prove her words, shortly after leaving her house, the two men are almost killed in a car accident by a hit-and-run driver. Tomi’s whole world collapses. Worried about his brother, whose injuries are severe, Tomi struggles to put the pieces of his life back together. This is nearly impossible, however, since he loses his dream job due to his inability to work, and then there’s his mom’s insistence that oni, Japanese demons, caused the collision. But one day, when Tomi sees a man washing his car on the street, he realizes it’s the same vehicle that caused the accident—a classic red sports car called a Crimson Cat. And the driver, the surprisingly handsome attorney Dusty Grayson, seems to be a man of hidden depth and many, many secrets…

This is nearly impossible, however, since he loses his dream job due to his inability to work, and then there’s his mom’s insistence that oni, Japanese demons, caused the collision. But one day, when Tomi sees a man washing his car on the street, he realizes it’s the same vehicle that caused the accident—a classic red sports car called a Crimson Cat. And the driver, the surprisingly handsome attorney Dusty Grayson, seems to be a man of hidden depth and many, many secrets…

Crashed

**When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?**
Life is full of moments.
Big moments.
Little moments.
*And none of them are inconsequential. *
Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.
*Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete.* Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. *Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?*
Love is full of ups and downs.
Heart stopping highs.
Soul shattering lows.
*And none of them are insignificant.*
Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.
*Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent.* And bent’s okay. *But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?*
Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

An aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France who lives to become a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying existence.

“If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream.”—*The Boston Globe*

“Frightening, sensual . . . Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature. . . . To read her is to become giddy as if spinning through the mind of time, to become lightheaded as if our blood is slowly being drained away.”—*San Francisco Chronicle*

“Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable.”—*The Washington Post*

“Rice has created universes within universes, traveling back in time as far as ancient, pre-pyramidic Egypt and journeying from the frozen mountain peaks of Nepal to the crowded, sweating streets of southern Florida.”—*Los Angeles Times*
