“Waiting On” Wednesday: David and Goliath

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication “can't-wait-to-read” selection is:

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell

Synopsis from Goodreads:
In his #1 bestselling books The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell has explored the ways in which we understand and change our world. Now he looks at the complex and surprising ways in which the weak can defeat the strong, how the small can match up against the giant, and how our goals (often cultural determined) can make a huge difference in our ultimate sense of success.

Drawing upon examples from the world of business, sports, culture, cutting-edge psychology and an array of unforgettable characters around the world, David and Goliath is in many ways the most practical and provocative book Malcolm Gladwell has ever written.

Publishing October 1, 2013 by Little, Brown and Company.
