Review

I have read many of Gladwell’s books and I always enjoy then even while remaining skepical about some of his reasonings.   In his newest book, Gladwell takes on the underdog story and the idea that the giants of the world  always have the upperhand in regards to advantages while those who are considered  at a disadvantage struggle to suceed.  Gladwell’s arguments turn these ideas on their head and presents a different way to looking at success as well as what is really a disadvantage.  I enjoyed this book, but remain in the camp that Gladwell needs to do a better job connecting his few examples with the broader point he is attempting to make.  Interesting theories, intriguing examples, but I feel it was a weak overall result.
