Marc Notes:
Originally published: Boston: Little, Brown, c2000.;Includes bibliographical references and index.;Ideas, products, messages and behaviors spread just like viruses do. Behavior can ripple outward until a critical mass or tipping point is reached, changing the world. Gladwell develops these and other concepts (such as the stickiness of ideas or the effect of population size on information dispersal) through simple, clear explanations and entertainingly illustrative anecdotes.

Publisher Marketing:
Discover Malcolm Gladwell's breakthrough debut and explore the science behind viral trends in business, marketing, and human behavior.

The 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 rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas.
