Gladwell on GPS: David was no underdog

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS featured an interview with Malcolm Gladwell, author of David and Goliath- Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants (October 2013), and staff writer for The New Yorker.

Gladwell discussed how disabilities and obstacles- in life and in business- can become advantages.  He chose to retell the Biblical parable of “David and Goliath” in order to dispute the notion that “the weak” can only succeed by “some improbable miracle” in a modern context.
