Review: The Tipping Point



The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell

I was reminded of my plan to read this book when Gladwell once again appeared on bestseller lists last year with his newest book, Blink.

This book tells a lot of different stories, experiments and research that ably demonstrates how things "shift" based on small changes. Gladwell explores the world of Sesame Street, crime in New York City, the wearing of Hush Puppies and people in the world who act as Connectors, Mavens and Salesmen.

It's not a lengthy novel, and Gladwell's writing is very approachable and understandable, and certainly makes you stop and consider trends, changes, shifts and human nature.

Very interesting, indeed...
