The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. 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. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas.

Highly overrated

From beginning to end the book takes you on a journey which process is boring and seemingly implausible. Gladwell does not even convince me in the end that the ideas he puts forth have any relevance in explaining epidemics other than a loosely based tie into scientific studies. The whole book read like an essay from a junior college student.From very early on in the book I was hoping it would end soon.

Malcolm Gladwell has a wonderful knack for taking the dry statistical studies of the academics and translating them into the interest peaking conversation pieces that everyone can share around the water-cooler. The Tipping Point is a prime example of his ability to open up people's minds to what social scientists are telling us.

The extensive research with which Mr. Gladwell states his case is very impressive. It is easy to understand why the contention is made and why it should be true. There is lots worth pondering throughout the entire book. I enjoyed it immensely.

Not bad

Gladwell presents some compelling arguments about the way ideas and behaviors spread in a very accessible way. Good use of examples, interesting categorization. Not a bad read over all.

This is a great book about how marketers and researchers combine with the average public members and create fads, trends, and various educational events. Tipping point is also a great recommendation for entrepreneurs and job seekers looking for ways to affect their personal or professional outcomes.
