Since I’m a bit of a window shopper by nature, the Frankie spreads of products to try or neatly designed housewares make my heart gush for pretty things. However, it’s not all peaches and pastels. I find the writing style by some of Frankie’s contributors a bit low-brow and vulgar. Not necessarily my taste in how to get a point across, but clearly the natural way many people do speak.
David and Goliath.
I’ve just started this book. And I mean just started. I’m only two pages in.
But when David and Goliath came out in 2013 I was really eager to read it. That’s a bit funny considering I’d never read any of Malcolm Gladwell’s other books, although the concepts behind Outliers and The Tipping Point did strike my fancy. I love trying to understand trends in society or people groups, so Gladwell’s interviews then observations about why being an underdog is not necessarily a disadvantage will hopefully not just inform but also inspire me. I remember reading that Gladwell returned to his Christian faith while writing this book, so I’m also interested to see if that’s apparent in his writing and analysis.
