Book Review of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

This book does drag a bit at times, but I still thought it was very interesting. I actually really enjoyed reading about the real-life studies and situations that were used to demonstrate the ways in which a very small change can have a huge effect, even making the difference between a major success and epic failure. When you read and learn what a profound difference a fairly small number of people or a relatively small act (such as cleaning up graffiti in the subway system, or arresting fare-beaters) can have on a large scale, it really does make you view situations differently. Suddenly the reasoning behind a lot of things makes more sense, even if it logically seems strange. While I wouldn't list it as one of my favorite books, it was very interesting and well worth reading.
