FREE READ » The Tipping Point How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference An alternate cover edition exists hereThe 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 ra. This book is fascinating and I was disappointed to read that many other readers didn t think so So here s my response I think those readers are approaching this book the wrong the way when they critisize Gladwell for his inability to prove his points thoroughly Sure Gladwell could have dotted every i and crossed every t and shown every counter example to the theories he s proposing There s a word for the books that accomplish that BORING Gladwell is a storyteller and he knows how to keep the reader involved By going into too much detail he would lose his audience Hopefully the reader who isn t convinced entirely can go into further detail by reading Gladwell s sources which are exhaustively referenced in the back of the book Another criticism is that Gladwell doesn t come to a specific point or that his points are hazy this was probably true with Blink I almost want to say who cares This book and Blink are veritable digests of the latest advances in psychology and sociology So what if the overarching idea of the book is loose You have now understood countless fascinating anecdotes which you can reconstruct in your own way It is Gladwell s loose structure that allows him to connect these disparate dots in a story that you can digest and despite the accusations that he is not precise about his overall thesis the individual incidents are very well explained I love knowing the differences between Sesame Street and Blue s Clues and the differences between an adult s and a child s cognitive capabilities Would I have read an entire book devoted solely to that Probably not but I was happy to read a chapter devoted to it and a very well written one at thatPerhaps I approach non fiction in a different way than most and I will admit that I m fascinated by almost any new dramatically different idea about any subject regardless of whether or not I believe it to be true but I think that people who go into this book seeking a different way of thinking about the world around us macro microcosmically will enjoy themselves Those who go into the book seeking to be convinced beyond doubt that that way of thinking is the correct way will not

I wish there was another word I could use instead of sexy I mean it metaphorically obviously but I want to tell you about the thing that I find to be the most sexy thing imaginable and I ve realised that sexy isn t really the word I should be using at all You realise of course I m talking about intellectually stimulating or satisfying when I say sexy That is what I want to talk about the thing that gives me my biggest intellectual buzzLook it isn t any of the obvious things you might be thinking of and all of those obvious things this book has in abundance Not that I actually read this book I listened to it as an audio book and that is important to say because I don t know if the book always has the afterword and it is something in the afterword that I loved most about this otherwise merely wonderful book As you may have guessed we will be returning to this laterWhat I m saying is that Gladwell is a sexy kind of guy anyway even before he did the best of all possible things in the afterword of this book He is what I like to call an interpreter I think he even refers to himself as this somewhere He straddles a number of worlds psychology medicine marketing social theory economics and he draws lines between those worlds in the way one might if one was to place a piece of plastic film over another piece of plastic film on an overhead projector so that what is written on both films of plastic merge to complete the picture in beautifully interesting ways Now that is sexy but it is only level one sexy I love watching relationships and patterns appear and I love a good story and Gladwell knows his stuff when it comes to patterns and he really knows how to tell a good story Don t get me wrong there is nothing the matter with level one sexy but it is intellectual foreplay and needs something to be truly satisfyingOne of the things this book is about is trends How do trends start What makes it fashionable for kids to start smoking Why do books by unknown authors suddenly become best sellers How is it that two people can do much the same thing and he gives a fascinating example from American History to explain this and yet have completely different in fact nearly opposite resultsOr why did Hush Puppies a brand of shoes that had virtually died suddenly become in the lingo of the streets uber cool Yes I know don t try being cool McCandless it really doesn t suit Essentially he talks about a small number of personality types that exist in the world that kick trends along and these types of people help make the virus of the latest thing spread to us all Those types of people are communicators people who know essentially everyone mavens people who know essentially everything and salesmen Sometimes we think that if we want to spread an idea far and wide we should find a way to get it to as many people as possible much like spam But when was the last time you bought something recommended to you from a piece of spam you received in your inbox See what I mean But I guess most of us know some car nut we go to when we are thinking of buying a car someone who reads all the car magazines and maybe even spends his it is always a boy weekends test driving the latest models This is the sort of person who can not only tell you the difference between an overhead cam shaft and polyunsaturated margarine but also why the cam shaft is better than butter In case you have not uite worked it out yet I am not one of those mavensIn a world awash with information much of which is lies although it is probably best we call it by its polite name advertising we are becoming ironically enough dependent on word of mouth information from sources we know we can trust Now isn t that a wonderful thesis and a direct confirmation of what you probably already suspected but hadn t put into words yet I guess this might be the second level of intellectual sexyThe next level towards intellectual nirvana is when someone says something totally unexpected that makes my brains resonate in a way that I know will have me thinking for weeks And he did that this morning as I was walking back from the beach by talking about collective memory This is penultimate in the scale of intellectual sexy I knew when he said this that what he was saying was going to end up in my reviewThey did a test on people they put people through a series of remembering tasks and they gave them these tests in pairs Some of the pairs were people who didn t know each other from a bar of soap and the others were people who were literally couples people in relationships And the result Well the people in the relationships did lots and lots better at remembering stuff than the people that the fickle hand of fate flung together Isn t that fascinating Doesn t that send a shiver down your spine But it gets better He then goes on to talk about why this might be the case and essentially he claims that we use our partners as a memory extension slot for our own brains In a relationship there is a division of labour when it comes to remembering stuff with one partner remembering the kids birthdays and the other remembering how to use the ice cream makerAnd now comes the bucket of ice water that made me stop on my walk and think God now isn t that really really interesting Part of the reason people fall into a deep depression when they go through a divorce and I thought perhaps even die shortly after their life partner dies may not just be that their partner has metaphorically taken away a part of their heart but literally taken away a part of their brain It is that line from Laurie Anderson about when her father died how she felt like a library had burnt down I think from The Ugly One with Jewels just before Speak My Language but I could be wrongBut do you know what is the sexiest thing about this book And the reason why you should avoid a first edition and get an edition with the afterword It is that after he has built a pretty good case for something made a rather good comparison that he uses to sustain the last bit of the book after he has finished writing the book after it is printed and done and dusted he thinks about it some and makes a couple of major revisions to some of his thinking in the afterword that goes in a later edition It is utterly clear to me that if he had the chance to write this book again he would do it differently Essentially the afterword is showing us how he would have made it different He is showing that no idea is ever finished with no idea can be finally put aside as a shining trophy only to gather dust and bird shit but ideas are only worthy of that name if they are alive and alive things change and grow or sometimes they sicken and dieAnd someone who does that that goes away and thinks about it even after it is done and finished with and then comes back and says Actually I could have done that a bit better let me see if I can just say it this way Now that is sexy that is the best This book is not nearly as good as Outliers and I only read this book because I read that book But do you know what This book is good enough that if I d read this book first I would have gone on read that book too
