In his New York Times bestselling books The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, New Yorker writer Gladwell offers delightfully persuasive ideas about how the world works. In his new book, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants — his most provocative and dazzling exploration yet — he challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a fresh interpretation of what it means to overcome adversity.
Drawing upon history, psychology and powerful storytelling, Gladwell reshapes the way we think about our lives. Don’t miss this influential thinker, whose talks have sold out across the country.
Tickets to Gladwell’s lecture are $25 to $35 for the general public and $15 for UCSB students with a current student ID. (An Arlington facility fee will be added to each ticket price.)
