A study about asymmetries,
This review is from: David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants (Kindle Edition)
This book is about asymmetry. Goliath may not be as big and strong as he appears. And David may not be as small and puny as he appears. This is a book that encourages us to face our challenges- and realise we may be stronger than we realise, and that our opponents may not be quite as forceful or opposed to us as we think.
It raises some interesting questions about peer groups and how we compare ourselves to others- without realising how the others compare to a wider sample- such as other colleges- or the whole country. Are you better to be top student in a lesser college? or to get to a highly prestigious college but sit around middle-bottom of that class?
There's some good stories and points in this book, and some helpful thoughts about asymmetries of power and resources
