It seems that so many reviewers have missed the entire point of the book.
The underdogs are able to overthrow the Goliath's because they are able see options that are outside of the norm. I find it ironic that most of the bad reviews are because this consent is insulting or foreign to the readers - so it must be wrong, which just reinforces Gladwell's point.
I am very glad that Gladwell did emphasize the point that travesty and difference does not guarantee success - for every one success story there are nine more who do not succeed.
While Gladwell did touch on Dyslexia, I think it would be fascinating for an entire book to look at this concept in relation to mental health and developmental disabilities. It seems to get to the top you have to be able to think and act differently from the world.
