Malcolm Gladwell wrote his latest book because he really is “interested in the power that comes from the heart—courage, determination, persistence.”
Gladwell talked about his book David and Goliath—Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants recently at an Arts & Letters Live presentation in Dallas.
He called that power of the heart “a weapon of the spirit.”
It is both “ a trite thing to say and a meaningful thing to say” that all of us radically underestimate the power and authority we have,” Gladwell said. Faith, he stressed, can give strength to people and helps ordinary people do extraordinary things.
