Pressestimmen

Praise for Outliers:

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today...Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward."—David Leonhardt, New York Times Book Review

"The explosively entertaining Outliers might be Gladwell's best and most useful work yet...There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: Outliers is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book."—Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly

"No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for."—Atlanta Journal Constitution

"[An] important new book...Gladwell intelligently captures a larger tendency of thought-the growing appreciation of the power of cultural patterns, social contagions, memes...Gladwell's social determinism is a useful corrective to the Homo economicus view of human nature."—David Brooks, New York Times

"Thought-provoking, entertaining, and irresistibly debatable...[Outliers] is another winner from this agile social observer."—Heller McAlpin, Christian Science Monitor

"Outliers is required reading for boardroom and watercooler crowds alike."—Men's Health

"In Outliers, Gladwell (The Tipping Point) once again proves masterful in a genre he essentially pioneered-the book that illuminates secret patterns behind everyday phenomena."—Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Tipping Point

"A fascinating book that makes you see the world in a different way."—Fortune

"Gladwell's theories could be used to run businesses more effectively, to turn products into runaway bestsellers, and perhaps most important, to alter human behavior."—New York Times

Praise for Blink

"A real pleasure...Brims with surprising insights about our world and ourselves."—Salon.com

"Intoxicating".Gladwell is an engaging writer and a first-rate tour guide.?—Thane Rosenbaum, Los Angeles Times

"BLINK moves quickly through a series of delightful stories?.Always dazzling us with fascinating information and phenomena."—David Brooks, New York Times Book Review

Format: Taschenbuch
"Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him." -- 1 Samuel 17:49-50 (NKJV)

I enjoyed every single story in the book. Mr. Gladwell is a fine storyteller. My disappointment was that the book didn't provide more practical advice.

There are three parts: the advantages of disadvantages (and the disadvantages of advantages), the theory of desirable difficulty, and the limits of power.

In the first part, the title could just as easily be: misunderstandings about advantages and disadvantages. They key lesson actually comes from the first story about how an experienced basketball coach built a winning team around extreme defense ... because the team didn't have much else going for it: make the most out of whatever advantage you can gain. The most practical application came in the material about how it's better to go to a lesser college and be a star there than to not be a star at a more highly regarded college.

In the second part, the title could just as easily be: slow down and notice what's going on. The examples show how concentration ... despite difficulties in doing so ... yields great insights and results.

In the third part, the title could just as easily be: don't push people too far, they'll get stronger in resistance.

So if you thought this book was going to give you some huge new insight from academia, I doubt if that will be the case. If you hoped to find some bit of practical advice for what to do differently, there's little past some good principles. The college lesson, however, is worth the price of the book for any high school seniors who will soon be making such decisions.

Enjoy some fun reading!

Format: Taschenbuch
*A full executive summary of this book will be available at newbooksinbrief dot com, on or before Tuesday, October 22, 2013.

This book is not about underdogs and giants in any conventional sense of these terms. Rather, the book is about the curious nature of advantages and disadvantages, and how each can (under certain circumstances) become its opposite.

The first lesson to be learned is that the things we take to be advantages are often no such thing. Our greatest mistake here comes from the fact that we identify a certain quality or characteristic as being a benefit or advantage, and then assume that the more of it there is the better--when this is often not the case. Put another way, most of us recognize that it is possible to have too much of a good thing, and yet we fail to appreciate just how often and where this principle applies. For instance, we recognize that having a certain amount of money greatly facilitates raising children (it being very difficult to raise a family in a state of poverty), and yet we fail to recognize that beyond a certain point wealth also makes parenting increasingly difficult (for it becomes harder and harder to instill qualities of hard-work and self-control). Or we recognize that small class sizes are a good thing, and yet we fail to recognize that classes can actually begin to suffer once they become too small (since diversity and energy begin to disappear).

Another arena wherein an advantage can become a disadvantage is in power and authority. Power and authority is an advantage, of course; however, when it is wielded illegitimately and without fairness, it can actually cause more chaos, destruction and violence than it curbs.

6 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Steffen R. VINE-PRODUKTTESTER am 22. November 2013
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Der Journalist Malcolm T. Gladwell stürmt seit Jahren die internationalen Bestsellerlisten im Bereich Sachbuch. The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference (2000), Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (2005), Outliers: The Story of Success (2008), What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures (2009). Und nun been David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants (2013). Ich bin durch einen Beitrag des Autors bei TED mit dem Titel "Malcolm Gladwell: The unheard story of David and Goliath" auf dieses neue Buch aufmerksam geworden. Eine sehr unterhaltsame Geschichte über den Kampf David gegen Goliath.

Die wesentlichen Punkte dieses in irritierend zusammenhangslosen Teilgeschichten gegliederten Werkes sind: "The powerful and the strong are not always what they seem." (position 149), "We think of things as helpful that actually aren't and think of other things as unhelpful that in reality leaves us stronger and wiser." (position 230), "Conventional wisdom holds that a disadvantage is something that ought to be avoided - that it is a setback or a difficulty that leaves you worse off than you would be otherwise." (position 1093), "These are David's opportunities: the occasions in which difficulties, paradoxically, turn out to be desirable." (position 1922)

Das Buch beginnt mit der wirklich interessanten Geschichte des historischen Kampfes Davids gegen Goliaths. Ein Paradebeispiel für soziale Irrtumsartefakte und kritikfreie Übernahme ins Allgemeinwissen. Ab sofort muss ich jedenfalls den Kopf schütteln, wenn jemand in Unkenntnis diese Metapher benutzt. Leider sinkt die Qualität des Werkes dann aber mit jedem Kapitel kontinuierlich.
