    THE TIPPING POINT is the biography of an idea, and the idea is quite simple. It is that many of the problems we face - from crime to teenage delinquency to traffic jams - behave like epidemics. They aren't linear phenomena in the sense that they steadily and predictably change according to the level of effort brought to bear against them. They are capable of sudden and dramatic changes in direction. Years of well-intentioned intervention may have no impact at all, yet the right intervention - at just the right time - can ...

Great Book Great Condition

by Karen on Jun 13, 2014

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

by Boonefork on Sep 15, 2011

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

by Damian A on Jan 24, 2011

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.

Such an intriguing book

Great read; highly interesting. Anyone else thought this was an insightful statement, "Crossing the 150 line is a small change that can make a big difference." (p. 183)

Any Connectors out there?

Interesting how Gladwell divided gifted people into these three groups: Connectors, Mavens and Salespeople. I, for one, associate myself as a Maven, but I think my tendency is towards the Connectors type.
