When I was searching for a new book to read this weekend, I came across Malcolm Gladwell’s newest called David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants. While I almost instantly realized I wasn’t going to have time for any pleasure reading during my “weekend,” I did notice that TED released a TED Talk by Gladwell based on that book. Check it out below:
This TED Talk is beautifully shot. One thing I hate about some of these new TED Talks is the tiny “stage” with the audience clustering around. That semi-circle seems so awkward!
Gladwell’s content is interesting, and he tells the story of David and Goliath only to turn the story on its head. What I love most about his Talk is his delivery. He is so conversational that it makes me feel like he’s talking to me at a dinner party.
