(Starred review.) A far- and free-ranging meditation on the age-old struggle between underdogs and top dogs.... Though the book begins like a self-help manual...it soon becomes clear that Gladwell is not interested in simple formulas or templates for success. He aims to probe deeply into the nature of underdog-ness and explore why top dogs have long had such trouble with underdogs.... In addition to the top-notch writing one expects from a New Yorker regular, Gladwell rewards readers with moving stories, surprising insights and consistently provocative ideas.
