Gladwell's research is fascinating and his style is very engaging. He's an excellent narrator, too. I was disappointed when it ended!
Book centers around one (and only one) point....small shifts in behavior, input, energy, focus, etc. can lead to extraordinary changes. This creates huge payoffs in self-improvement, business, relationships, etc. If you need more support for this idea, listen to this book. If you understand this, than recommend you move on.
I liked this book as it was filled with interesting facts. I am not sure what to do with the information.
One of the best books I've ever read. Full of knowledge, written in a fun and interesting way. Though it's not a business book, has helped me tremendously in business.
Love the full book, and the abridged version gives you a good summary of the major points. However, there's nothing quite like the full, unabridged version, so I only rated it 4-stars. Otherwise, the theories and evidence pare presented in a gripping fashion and are very convincing, too.
Interesting for marketing types but I applied some of the concepts to customer service within my team and found there IS a tipping point. Like some other books, not the best on the topic I'm sure but a good addition to a collection of this type of book.
This is an excellent book; however, I do not know why simplyaudiobooks only carries an abridged version.
Judging by all of the great reviews and recommendations, I thought that this book was going to be spectacular. I was pretty underwhelmed. The examples that the author uses to get his points across are interesting, but the devices that the author describes as necessary to reach a tipping point seemed rather obvious and elementary. It pretty much reminded me of stuff you would learn from an introductory marketing class. Not a bad book. But not nearly as good as people have been claiming.
One of those books that is so powerful I spend the next three months hoping for its equal.....
I only wished it wasn't abridged; this is a great book and really expands your views on influence, timing, and popular culture. I highly recommend it.
