Amazing book written for the scholar or layman. It's so easy to take the authors ideas and find other applications for his model. A great read and something to keep you thinking.
An amazing novel with surprising conclusions all about ideas. The author pulls from every kind of interest or story and creates an image of an idea. He describes, with supported facts and detail, what a tipping point is. He doesn't just apply it to ideas, but also with physical things. All of his examples are highly interesting. It is truly amazing one person can accomplish a work such as this, becuase of the wide range of knowledge involved. He must have done countless hours of research with a vigor to prove a point. This novel was a huge success for me, not just becuase it was so easy to read and had great examples interwoven in the argument, but it was so different and refreshing.
One of those books that summarizes in a brilliant way what we all kind of know, but then are amazed by when it is said well. That's Gladwell's skill, I think.
This was the first book I read on socio-economics and I found it very interesting -- this book taught me a new paradigm of how our solutions might affect others and how they may be used to someone's advantage . . . This book became even more interesting to me after reading "Freakonomics" since the pieces of literature are somewhat opposed in their view on very similar topics.
