Summary: The Tipping Point: Review and Analysis of Malcolm Gladwell’s Book
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell was one of those books that received plenty of publicity and there was a feeling that you had to read it.
I prefer the summary to the full buck and gave it an extra star with my Four Stars rating on Amazon.co.uk.
Here is my review of the book summary.
A nice summary of the main concepts of how ideas can be encouraged to spread virally
Some years ago many people were saying that The Tipping Point was a great book.
I read it and was disappointed as I explained in my 3 star review. The analysis of how ideas spread was interesting but the book was guilty of being padded out much too much.
Different examples can be helpful to increase understanding and the subtle nuances but not when you believe they’re included to reach a minimum page or word target.
It’s a perfect example of the value of these book summaries that condense the details into the core ideas. Even this summary is significantly shorter than some of the others I’ve read which demonstrates how little core content the full book contains.Business Books Reviews by Paul Simister (Please click).
