“He was a giant, six foot nine at least, wearing a bronze helmet and full body armor. He carried a javelin, a spear, and a sword.”
Malcolm Gladwell’s description of Goliath in his book, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants was as imposing as the Bible’s.
But Gladwell says the hulking warrior stood little chance of beating the brave young shepherd. David was a slinger.
He could accurately hurl rocks at head crushing speeds.
What if Goliath, however, had his own lethal sling?
The investment industry could be asking that now.
