I first gave this speech in 1968. Only I called it David and the Princess because that is it’s more appropriate title. In 1975 I delivered it to 10,000 people at Dexter Yager’s great Free Enterprise Day in Charlotte, North Carolina. Almost five million copies of that cassette tape or CD sold around the world in 30 language or more. I was invited to share it to Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn, 15,000 Muslims in Jakarta, an open air event of 40,000 – mostly Hindus – in Bombay, 50,000 at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow and more than 300 other cities in stadiums and coliseums on six continents.
Now, with the release of Malcolm Gladwell’s bestseller on David and Goliath I thought it appropriate to bring it out of moth balls. The truths are eternal. And my take is still unique and unassailable. Not a day goes by that someone in the world doesn’t email me about it. I have been urged to monetize it but would rather make it easily available to a new generation of young dreamers. Here you go.
