    Really good book. It read like a bestseller (quick read), but had a lot of substance to stop and make you think. three Rules of the tipping point: the law of the few, the stickyness factor, the power of context. Law of the Few (people who influence): - Connectors: super connect...

    I wish there was another word I could use instead of sexy. I mean it metaphorically, obviously, but I want to tell you about the thing that I find to be the most sexy thing imaginable ? and I?ve realised that sexy isn?t really the word I should be using at all. You realise, of co...

    In a work heavily influenced by the budding science of memetics (though he never once uses the word meme), Malcom Gladwell seeks to provide a framework for explaining why certain isolated phenomena (suicide in Micronesia, wearing hush puppies, reading a particular novel) can suddenly b...

    This book is fascinating and I was disappointed to read that many other readers didn't think so. So here's my response. I think those readers are approaching this book the wrong the way when they critisize Gladwell for his inability to prove his points thoroughly. Sure, Gladwell co...

    The book that became a catchphrase! The term "tipping point" has become so commonly used in news stories that I wonder how many people know it came from a book. I read this back in 2000 when I was in grad school for sociology. It's a fun little book of case studies, many of which ap...

    This book grew out of an article Malcolm Gladwell was writing for the New Yorker. Frankly, it is better suited for a 5-7 page article rather than a 280 page book. The crux of the book is that the "stickiness factor" of epidemics (whatever the nature) begins with a tipping point. This t...

    Can I give this zero stars? When I read this book, back in 2006, I got really mad and wrote a scathing review of it on Amazon.com. Here it is: "I've been duped!, June 20, 2006 By Sarah (California, USA) - See all my reviews This book sucks. Don't waste your hard earned money ...

    Holy suppositions, Gladwell! There's a whole lotta coulds, may haves, apparentlies, perhapses up in here! Malcolm Gladwell's basic premise in The Tipping Point: To explain how word-of-mouth is spread. A couple of the examples he used were how crime was reduced in NYC under Giulia...

    Here?s why you need to read The Tipping Point. You don?t!! Look, it?s not because the writing is poor, the concepts disorganized, or the book fails to instruct. It?s simply that the ideas are anachronistic. This is no fault of Malcolm Gladwell. He published in 2000, wrote in...

    How the flying fuck did this piece of shit ever get published? How on God's green earth did this thing become a bestseller? Yes, I'm the last person in America to read The Tipping Point, and I'm glad I waited. Now that all the hype has burned off, it's easy to see this book for wha...
