Let me preface this – I highly recommend this book along with Gladwell’s other title – Blink. I don’t recommend listening to the abridged version like I did. The book isn’t that long, and the abridgement cuts out a lot of interesting things. The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference is another well written book by Gladwell (actually this one came before Blink, but whatever). It’s a fascinating study of why trends, whether in fashion, tv, criminal behavior and any other behavior, happen or don’t happen. Gladwell takes the approach of looking at trends like an epidemic and what factors contribute to the spread. He does all this by offering interesting case studies and factual information while providing a well written, entertaining and thought provoking read. I highly recommend it.
