What are you reading right now? 

Right now, I am reading Malcolm Gladwell’s newest book, “David and Goliath.”

What spurred you to read that book?

Gladwell is an author whose work I really enjoy. Aside from “David and Goliath,” I have read “The Tipping Point” and “Blink.” They all have the same intriguing concept, where he dissects real-life situations and moments to create a new meaning or figure out why they happened. What spurred me to read this particular book was my interest in the history of “David and Goliath” and how Gladwell would dissect the story of their fight — a book to challenge the reader’s thinking about obstacles, disadvantages, and how to cope with them. 

Has anything you read in it stuck with you? Would you recommend it to others?

The one thing that stuck with me in this book is how at times many of us may feel like David in this story, while trying to compete as a real estate broker in New York City, figuring out what tools we need to use in order to be successful and overcome our obstacles. Yes, I would recommend it to others.
