Easy read. Good flow. Great examples. Intriguing. I come out energized to try to leverage the ideas.

My largest complaint is that I work for a spider company (explicitly mentioned in the book), and while there are some proposed ways to include starfis

I've been interested in NVC for some time, having read a few books before this one. I really enjoyed Kelly's stories and fresh perspective on how to live your life. I read this over a series of months, making slow progress reading before bed, putting ...more

Whew. Quite a book. Reading it on my Kindle, I didn't have a sense of how long it was, and Amazon tells me it is 640 or 710, depending on the edition. After reading Mieville's newer books first, I've now gone back and starting reading his earlier wor ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the ideas, I loved the style, and I loved how it made me think. I read it consistently for four months, just a bit each night before bed, and it worked great - not so intense that I wanted to stay up late to read i ...more
David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've enjoyed every one of Malcolm's books, and this one is right there along with the others. The key thesis is that the difference between those viewed as stronger/in power/superior and those weaker/without power/inferior is often not as large as yo ...more

I've become a big fan of Mieville's over the past few years, and he has become my go-to author for my annual vacation to the beach, which has a lot more down-time than other trips and for which I can pick a good, single book to get through in the tim ...more

I've always enjoyed Dan Ariely's work - first as a regular contributor to NPR's Marketplace, and more recently as an author of multiple books. His relaxed and informal writing style combined with some really cool experiments makes for an easy and enl ...more
