David & Goliath

October 1st marks the launch of Malcolm Gladwell’s latest in a series of groundbreaking books. Previous titles have included The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers.  His books have explored theories from the way in which an idea takes hold in society to the power of intuition over prolonged thought to the 10,000 hours required for a person to become an expert in his or her chosen field.

His latest title explores the nature of underdogs as illustrated through various David & Goliath real world examples.  This narrative is of particular interest for attorneys. Whether it be the lone defense attorney defending his client against the weight of the state, the employment rights attorney against a regiment of in-house counsel or the solo attorney buried in volumes of discovery.
