About The Book Being small is not the same as being weak and those considered insignificant can often turn into revolutionaries. The ones who have been discarded as worms, bloom into beautiful butterflies and show humanity a new path. Underestimation is the biggest fallacy of society, but it is this curse that has time and again brought the best out of people. Deriving its title from a famous fable, David And Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits And The Art Of Battling Giants talks about people who excelled beyond their expectations.

David And Goliath explains this phenomenon through anecdotes and stories about famous people and some not-so-famous ones as well. The book gives you a beautiful message, showing you that tough times and hardships don't last but tough people do. Aimed at making people realise the potential lying latent within them, David And Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits And The Art Of Battling Giants will help you get a fresh view on all the adversity you have faced. It was published in 2013 and is available in hardcover. Key Features The book featured in the New York Times bestseller list.
