Malcolm Gladwell Wrestles With David And Goliath Stories

Author Malcolm Gladwell is known for taking an alternate tack to conventional thinking, in books like “ The Tipping Point” and “ Outliers.”

In October 2013, Gladwell published “ David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants,” in which he argued that many underdogs are not as disadvantaged – and Goliaths are not as favored – as they might appear at first glance.

At that time, Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson spoke to Malcolm Gladwell. Today we revisit that conversation.
