More books Seth recommended in 2013

In 2013, Seth recommended "David and Goliath" by Malcolm Gladwell and said...

Is there a better title for a business book? When I heard what he was up to, I was immediately, insanely jealous. I can think of a hundred authors who could have easily written a book with this title, and done a very good job indeed.

That's not what Malcolm delivered. He veers off the expected course early on, and never returns. This isn't a book about trying extra hard and defeating the big guys. No, it's a book about culture, about heroism, and about the choices that each of us make.

Malcolm Gladwell's provocative new #1 bestseller -- now in paperback.

Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a pebble and a sling-and ever since, 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?

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, suffer from a disability, lose a parent, attend a mediocre school, or endure any number of other apparent setbacks.

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 story-telling to reshape the way we think of the world around us.
