There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I love the way Malcolm Gladwell backs up his points with research and facts (something he has made a career out of).
However I listened to this after Outliers and was expecting a little more, given how much I enjoyed that book. Regardless, it's definitely worth a read or listen.

The one downside to the book is that it doesn't quite manage to tie everything together into giving advice about how to create a "tipping point" for your own business. It all seems to boil down to "know the right people", and "do the right thing at the right time". It can explain very well why "tipping points" have happened, but it doesn't explain so well how to create a "tipping point" for your own organisation or activities. If this is the kind of advice you are looking for, then the book is not going to achieve your goals completely. However, I must reiterate that it gives superb explanations of "tipping points" that have happened, these analyses are very thought provoking, and you could certainly take many of the lessons and ideas and try to apply them to your own business.
Just not a book for me, will put it in the local lending library and hopefully someone who appreciate it will pick it up!
