    David and Goliath

    This book opens my eyes to the situation in every inclusive classroom today. We are called to NOT compare and contrast. What may appear to be an advantage may in fact become a hindrance. What may appear to be a handicap may be the defining characteristic to accomplishment. From the autistic child, the child with Down Syndrome or the child with an exceptional memory, this book helped me to understand even more deeply the truth that all human life comes with Spirit and Character. All human life has a purpose, and we are all invited to seek out our passions. What may be perceived as inevitable, good or bad, may only be a smoke screen. The fulfillment of our lives comes from being true to our selves.

    Reinforced my beliefs

    Gladwell does another brilliant job of exploring the events to prove his position. If ever there was a book that convinced you that you can find advantages in situations that others find hopeless, this is it!

    The weak aren't always weak

    While I enjoyed this book I found it hard to always buy into the argument that the powerful aren't always what they appear. Gladwell may have a point about the curve, but it gets warped and woven through the stories and seems unrecognizable by the end. Especially poignant for me was the Candace Dersken story as I was the same age & it occurred in the Mennonite community. How to forgive in that circumstance I don't understand, but God, who gave David courage to face Goliath, certainly strengthened the Derksens to forgive Candace's killer.

    Informative

    Very informative without going into indebt history. I was impressed with the contributions of so many different individuals and how it impacted on every day life.
