What if everything we thought about power was wrong? What if, in the ancient story of the shepherd boy who topples a giant, David actually had the advantage? This thought sets Malcolm Gladwell on an extraordinary journey that takes him from art to basketball, the brain to revolutions, along the way weaving unforgettable stories of misfits, outsiders, tricksters and underdogs who have faced outsized challenges and won. With his trademark warmth, humour and gift for showing us the world through new eyes, Gladwell lets us see why the powerful aren't always what we think they are - and that some of us have more strength and purpose than we could ever imagine. 'Intoxicating, powerful and morally engaged' Guardian 'Truly intriguing and inspiring' Los Angeles Times

Industry Reviews
Intoxicating, powerful and morally engaged Guardian Breath-taking and thought-provoking New York Times Truly intriguing and inspiring Los Angeles Times Gladwell's most enjoyable book so far. It is a feel-good extravaganza, nourishing both heart and mind. Each of its stories ... has an ending that is both happy and surprising. What ostensibly unites the stories are the twin ideas that an advantage can sometimes be a disadvantage and that a disadvantage can sometimes be an advantage. Yet there is something more powerful and more uplifting that also links them. It is that good beats bad - just when you least expected it Financial Times When you read it, you feel like you can topple giants -- Jon Ronson An energetic, counterintuitive exploration of why (and how) underdogs succeed Guardian, Books of the Year Continuing to gently but persistently blow my mind -- Lauren Laverne I devoured it in a single reading -- Richard E. Grant The pre-eminent public intellectual of his age The Times Bloody good -- Gabby Logan
