Here's a few more great titles for your holiday gift list:

David & Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants David & Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants
by Malcolm Gladwell

The author of bestsellers The Tipping Point and Outliers examines and challenges our concepts of advantage and disadvantage in his new book. Beginning with the classic tale of David and Goliath, Gladwell moves through history with figures such as Lawrence of Arabia and Martin Luther King Jr., showing how players labeled underdog use that status to their advantage and prevail through the elements of cunning and surprise.

The Lowland The Lowland
by Jhumpa Lahiri

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author comes a tale of two continents in an era of political tumult. Two brothers in India are inseparable, yet completely different: Subhash is serious, cautious, and reliable, while Udayan is brash, impassioned, and rebellious. One prepares to go to America to earn his PhD, while the other experiences a life-altering political awakening.

"Haunting...A novel that crosses generations, oceans, and the chasms within families...A formidable and beautiful book." - Publishers Weekly (boxed review)

The Big New Yorker Book of Cats The Big New Yorker Book of Cats
by Anthony Lane, Haruki Murakami, Calvin Trillin

This fun and worthy follow-up to last year's Big New Yorker Book of Dogs features short stories, articles, humor, poems, and charming color covers from the magazine's archives - all on the feline subject. Contributors include John Updike, Ted Hughes, James Thurber, Elizabeth Bishop, Margaret Atwood, Roald Dahl, Susan Orlean, Peter Matthiessen, William Steig, Sam Gross, and more!
