The Tipping Point (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.167

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference is a book that explores how understanding the nature of social epidemics helps in comprehending the sociological changes in one’s life.

Summary Of The Book

Malcolm Gladwell, the world renowned journalist and author, examines the social epidemics surrounding the lives of common men and offers a fresh perspective on the world. The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference is a book that talks about change and helps the reader understand why changes happen so unexpectedly and quickly. Drawing inspiration from sociology, psychology, and epidemiology, the book offers an intellectual adventure story that is loaded with examples from the different worlds of fashion, media, business, and even education.

Gladwell defines the three fundamentals that can be applied to social epidemics such as rumors and trends. The bases of his theories are three key points which are The Power of Context, The Stickiness Factor, and The Law of the Few. He makes use of several case studies like the story of the Hush Puppies and the decreasing crime rate in New York City, to prove his point.

Tipping point is that magical moment of time when a trend, social behavior, or an idea crosses a threshold and spreads like fire, just like an epidemic. He argues that just the way a sick person can initiate an epidemic of the flu, similarly messages, products, behavior, and ideas can spread like infectious diseases. The book deals with certain specific situations where the concept of tipping point was used and the author explains how this concept can help people solve the numerous problems they encounter in their everyday life.

He examines a variety of events and situations such as direct mail, fashion trends, children’s television, and smoking to explain how a social epidemic and be started and sustained. He draws parallels between the behavior and volatility of human sociological problems and epidemics. Gladwell emphasizes the fact that right intervention at the right time is most crucial and on the other hand years of efforts at an intervention may turn out to be futile if not applied at the right time.

First published in 2000 by Little Brown, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference sold 1.7 million copies in the first six years. An internationally-acclaimed bestseller, it uses the tipping point phenomenon to help people throughout the world change the way they think about trading products and spreading ideas.

Some facts are pretty good

Gladwell wrote a decent book. He gave very good reasons for some incidents in past why they tipped but when it comes to give solution of some problems today, he didnt mention any valid points. Its a worth to read for extensive readers but if you read rarely then this is not a book to read.

PRETTY FACTFULL

I guess all Malcolm Gladwell's are full of facts. This guy has really done his home work. Non-Fiction has to be backed up by solid real examples and this book is full of that. (TIP: read the book at one go, reading it with intervals is not recommended, as you may forget the previous points). You really need to LEARN this book, ITS EXCITING SCIENCE!!

One point book

Well researched and presented book, the entirety of which is devoted to proving and expanding upon the central premise - that something achieves high visibility, or goes viral, only because of a small segment of highly social, well-connected, people. That's it. The rest of the book is devoted to explaining and proving that one statement, without bringing forth any new ideas. If the central theme interests you, it's a highly recommended book. If you're looking for a collection of ideas or broad ranging exploration, than the blurb on the product page is sufficient.

The novelist has justified the tagline ???how little things can make a big difference??? in a very articulate way. The reader is able to understand the recondite subjects of how a wonted phenomena turns into an epidemic reaching the so called Tipping Point. The writer has provided an explicit knowledge of the 80/20 rules as well as the 150 rule which are the basis of modern management philosophy.

Some of the facts in the text are startling as well as fascinating which could be discussed for days among friends and acquaintances having better view points of the same.

I hope that Malcolm might have also predicted the tipping point for the sale of his book as it is going to spread like a wild fire.

Excellent Book an Absolute Eye Opener

I would recommend this book to every one who is interested in understanding the dynamics of life. Its not just the business but the perception of a person about a situation which has to be changed. How can a small drop create an avalanche? This book explains how little changes and small incidents end up changing the world for good or better.

When i was reading the book someone remarked, "An MBA in the Making?" or " An MBA at Work". I wonder why only management students should read this book. Its an eye opener and i guess everyone needs one every now and then.

A fascinating read

I have been hearing about this book for quite some time now. So finally I got my hands on it. Malcom Gladwell has transformed an idea form one of his earlier articles into a fascinating book that is thought provoking and mind boggling. (View complete review)

Malcolm Gladwell

I have read all books by the author - The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw and the recently published David and Goliath. All books are very interesting and eminently readable. In fact, I would also recommend his highly intelligent talks available on TED and YouTube. (View complete review)
