Malcolm Gladwel does it again. This is a great book about underdogs and favourites, in traditional Gladwell fashion it aims to change the paradigm on the perceived advantages of powerful individuals and institutions over the perceived disadvantages of underdogs and why we are wrong in thinking the way we think right now. Very interesting read, will definitely change your perspective on this topic. Recommend it

Crazeedi Yep great book! 4mo

When I'm looking for something thought provoking I turn to Malcolm Gladwell. I loves this book that explores the way we see "underdogs".

RaimeyGallant Interesting!! And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it.

Thanks for the tag! @julesG

1. David & Goliath
2. Just finished “You Are A Badass”!
3. It was stuff I‘ve at one point practiced in my life. It was helpful to listen to it on audio to keep me pumped throughout the day!
4. I had a major reading slump in my early 20s, so It was years! All I did back then was go out and party! 😂 I‘m so glad I came back to reading, my first love.

I enjoyed the stories within this book proving his case about overcoming odds. I always enjoy Gladwell‘s narrative nonfiction style. #LitsyAtoZ

Crazeedi I liked this book, his thoughts on what Goliath suffered from were fascinating 10mo

Walked a cold Lafayette Oatmeal 5K while listening to this book. So interesting- wanted to keep walking to finish the chapter!

Mehso-so

This was quite interesting but it covered such a vast array of subjects that it felt almost scattershot from insurgencies to class size and choice of school. Also, parts of the audio where different legends or myths were read hit me wrong.

I am still working through #Underdogs for #MonthOfZusak. Not my favorite book. Have felt like bailing on it several times but am sticking with it. I think the second story in this book was better than the first so hopefully the third one will be even better.

MinDea Thank you @Reviewsbylola I took it using the new night mode on my phone's camera. It's such a cool feature! You'd never know it was pretty dark in the room except for my reading light! 11mo
MinDea @mcipher seriously! It really does feel a tad like homework. 😆😆😆 I just want to like it so bad because it's Markus Zusak but I just don't. 😒 11mo
OrangeMooseReads She‘s so pretty 😻 ... good luck with the book. 11mo
