Gladwell wants us to consider the radical idea that what we think of as our greatest weakness might really be our greatest strength. And he explores this idea through stories and studies of sports, wealth, and academics as he follows our related misconceptions of weakness and strength. To illustrate his thesis, Gladwell explains the reasons why, once David accepted the challenge in the Valley of Elah, poor Goliath never stood a chance.
