BR 24: The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

Category: 3 – SHELF it (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

Comments: Very good book in terms of the concept. I liked the book for the most part and the only reason it is not a ‘BUY it!’ is because while I understood how many ideas made it big, I felt a big part of it was beyond my control and hence, less actionable.

What to expect: Gladwell is the business and self-help lover’s  Dan Brown in my opinion – he puts together a whole lot of data and presents it VERY well. Hence, The Tipping Point is an example of many good facts put together to bring forth some good insights.
