The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell Book Summary

From the bestselling author of The Bomber Mafia: discover Malcolm Gladwell's breakthrough debut and explore the science behind viral trends in business, marketing, and human behavior. 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.

“A wonderful page-turner about a fascinating idea that should affect the way every thinking person looks at the world.” —Michael Lewis

Read it.. Thank you Gladwell, for changing my perception of the events around me.

Tipping Poinnt. Great book

Lost interest halfway through. It was hard at points of the book to stay interested

Great. Book truly is eye opening. Worth reading if your interested in anything human psychology to marketing.

The Tipping Point. What Gladwell does is blend invisible lines or barriers that have stopped many into really seeing what cause and effect really happens and measures it. Especially when it comes to understanding fads, epidemics (real or imagined) , etc.....thus the tipping points, if you love stastistics, trends, and why things happen the way they do, you will love this book. Steve L.

Good. The writing did not flow as well and the ideas were not quite as organized as Outliers but it was still a great look into the types of people that tip epidemics. A little dry but worth the time for aspiring entrepreneurs.

great book!. Gladwell’s The Tipping Point is a book that explains and discovers why certain products become popular or problems turn into epidemics. I listened to this book as an audiobook while at work. Gladwell narrated this book himself, the audio book only being 8 hours long it was easy to follow while doing other tasks at work. The way Gladwell researches and explains his theories really had me very interested throughout the book making it east to listen to in a few days. One of Gladwell’s examples explains how Hush Puppies went from almost going out of business, only being sold in smaller mom and popshops to being an overnight sensation. If you have ever wondered why a product or event “tips” in or out of popularity I would recommend this book, Gladwell covers three different ideas on how things tip. Gladwell chooses situations like, Paul Reveres midnight ride, how NYC cleaned up the streets, and Sesame Street vs. Blues Clues. If you ever wanted an easy dose of sociology this is a great book.

The Tipping Point tips. I'm really late in reading this book. Actually, I've read many of Gladwell's others books and found them interesting, so I decided to read this one too. I'm glad I did. I can see connections in his way of thinking. The things he was addressing in this book in 2000 are still relevant today. The books Contagious by Jonah Berger and Made To Stick written by the Heath Brothers - Dan and Chip further Gladwell's work. Both those books are pretty awesome too. Having a better understanding of the foundational context Gladwell lays out is a great resource. No matter when you read this book, I think you'll find it very compelling.

Very interesting. It’s a very interesting read but can get a little long/dry sometimes

Outstanding. Incredible analysis combined with thoughtful points to take away. Learned a lot and am using it daily.

Brilliant Book. Gladwell’s insights and writing style are so compelling. This book is a delight.

Social Contagion. Malcom Gladwell never disappoints. In another one of his careful analyses of correlation and causation in social dynamics, Gladwell delivers a unique dissection of the existing idea of Tipping Points. In a well structured format, he breaks down the three key factors that help identify when patterns “tip” into something inescapable. More importantly, he unpacks the details so that the concepts can be applied and not just understood. To that end I will try to use Covid as an allegory to explain the three key concepts. Super Spreaders, so relevant to the containment of COVID. That 20% who 80 of the work or damage of propagating a social issue. Like the Butterfly Effect, a spreader acts as a rippling wave of small daily actions repeated blindly but putting the most people at impact based on our degrees of connectedness. Think of the popular person who seems to knows everyone; he or she passes it onto their social circle, who then pass it on to their networks. Ideas that stick. When the wave hits the other 80%, it doesn’t simply wash over. The sand, sea urchins, and sting of the fast moving water stay with you the rest of the day. Ideas or issues are thus firmly implanted in the mind of all those it comes across. From a catchy jingle, to the latest hash tag challenge, or worse, a click bait conspiracy theory link haphazardly passed around social media. Those sticky ideas spread misinformation which only fuel the speed by promoting faulty logic. Environmental conditions on the ground. As Gladwell puts it’ “Epidemics are sensitive to the conditions and circumstances of the times and places in which they occur.” Japan’s and New Zealand’s respective successes in handling Covid maybe more cultural than anything else. Each country familiar with mask use, limited physical contact, strong group ties, and a deference to scientific guidance. The challenge is how to devise campaigns for social change that target the right 20%, to have a meaningful impact from small actions, and stick once they hit the mainstream. That is the deeper meaning and go forward challenge you get from The Tipping Point. Along with more of Gladwell’s beautiful narrative style and illustrative examples from unique perspectives on stories new and old.

Amazingly Real!. This book, in the beginning, may seem to be the average "marketing guide" excerpt, though as you read, you see that is research at is purest, simple interpretation of what the human being behaves like and the interactions among different types of personalities. Extremely fun to read, and truly revealing. Recommended reading for those who want to discover a new point of view on character definition.

not terribly scientific. I strongly recommend this read. Nevertheless, the author's style has a patina of trite, American suburbia. Like many news reporters, he makes unsupported deductions, conclusions which could just as easily be the opposite of what he claims. His reasoning is often ludicrously unscientific. He does, however connect some interesting facts which most, including me, wouldn't normally connect. He has a refreshing way of viewing seemingly banal situations to give rare insight.

Brilliant. Very eye opening for web entrepreneurs, business people, and people generally curious about sociology and communication.

Must Read. Excellent book, really puts things in perspective in a very intuitive, and simple way. It paints the concept of connectors, mavens, and salesmen in a real life brush that everyone can relate to. It changed my perspective, oh and I can say with confidence that the rule of 150 works, and it works well.
