David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm GladwellM alcolm Gladwell's new book promises to turn your view of the world upside down. We all think we know what happened when David took on Goliath: the little guy won. Gladwell thinks we all have it wrong, and opens his new book with a retelling of that story.

The only way he could have beaten David was by literally getting his hands on him — but David had no need to go anywhere near him.
