Most non-fiction books about science belabor the point, and as a result I find them boring and overdone. Malcolm Gladwell manages to tell his supporting stories quite well, in a pop media fashion, that I find quite effective.
David and Goliath is another great example of good writing and interesting examples (even if they sometimes meander) that keeps my interest level the entire way. As you might expect, David the underdog is illustrated in many situations, both historical and modern, why we root for him, and how he might even use his disability to his advantage.
You’d never imagine after finishing this book that Malcolm always roots for the Goliath, at least in sporting events.
