For nearly 3,000 years, Western civilization has assumed that David’s defeat of Goliath was a remarkable achievement considering the fact that David was so obviously overpowered by Goliath’s might.  But in his brand new book, David And Goliath, writer Malcolm Gladwell explains why our assumptions have been dead wrong.  This past Sunday, Anderson Cooper filed a report for 60 Minutes where he profiles Gladwell’s reasoning behind why David was not as much of an underdog as we had previously thought, as well as giving us a glimpse into the private life of Gladwell himself.  You can watch it in full below, pick up your own copy of Malcolm Gladwell’s new book at Amazon, and enter Malcolm’s world by visiting
