David and Goliath employs individual case studies and comparison to provide a wide range of examples where perceived major disadvantages in fact turn out to be the keys to the underdog Davids' triumph against Goliath-like opponents or situations.

These anecdotal lessons are anchored by references to research in the social sciences. Critical response to David and Goliath was largely negative.
