The Tipping Point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. In this widely acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, and looks at why major changes in our society so often happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. An intellectual adventure story and a road map to change, with a profoundly hopeful message that one imaginative person applying a well-placed lever can move the world.
Very Interesting. Very observant. A really good read. But then I enjoy all of Gladwell's books.
The book itself was in perfect condition and arrived in a most timely manner. Very pleased.

Stuff You Never Thought Of
This book, along with Gladwell's "Blink" and "Outliers: The Story of Success" are outstanding reads and invoke memories of the first time I read Vance Packard's "The Hidden Persuaders" some forty years ago; the feeling that someone was sharing secrets that had always been kept from me about the world I live in. I'll read more of Malcolm Gladwell.

A Great Read
Another, looking at things from a different angle, pearl of wisdom from Malcolm Gladwell. This is the 3rd book from him that I have read and it is no less enjoyable than the other two. Learn how things become an epidemic, how a no name brand of shoes close to scrapping, but when worn by a few people in soho become a global phenomenon. Where 6 degrees of separation is from, work out if you know a Maven, Connector or a salesman. Why do some issues tip and others don't its all answered in the unique style of Malcolm. Read his other books too they are very enjoyable and not too heavy even though some of the concepts are.
