“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips and spreads like wildfire.”
The Tipping Point is the debut book by Malcolm Gladwell. It was first published in 2000. It is a non-fiction book. It was a bestseller.
I happend to read Malcolm Gladwell’s book for the very first time in 2010. It was a book named Outliers. I am glad I got to read that book, and after that I bought most of his books. I love his work and so proud to be his fan.
The Tipping Point is a book that makes you see the world in a different way. It is one of those books that changes the way you think about everything. It shows how little things can make a big difference.
The concepts in this book will make you think, even after putting down the book. Malcolm Gladwell’s book takes a look behind the surface of familiar occurrences in our everyday world. He explains the social dynamics that cause rapid change.
He has widely researched for this book. He offers readers a groundbreaking analysis of how trends start. Tipping point is the point at which a series of small changes or process, becomes important enough to cause larger and more significant change.
It is a brilliant and fascinating book. It makes you think about the world around you in a different way.
Some of my favourite quotes in The Tipping Point are:
“A book, I was taught long ago in English class, is a living and breathing document that grows richer with each new reading.”
“There are exceptional people out there who are capable of starting epidemics. All you have to do is find them.”
“Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable, implacable place. It is not, with the slightest push- in just the right place- it can be tipped.”
