The Tipping Point
"I wanted to read The Tipping Point, by Malcolm Gladwell, because I'd read his other book, Blink, which I was completely blown away by. I thought it was really awesome. So, I was interested in it, first of all, just because I thought the author was very interesting. The book is about how something small can change something from just disappearing into oblivion, for example, into becoming a trend, like how shoes that are worn by a small group of hipsters suddenly become so popular that they're all over the street. What I liked most about the book were the surprises in it - the unpredictable elements, the things that went against what my expectation was. So, a lot of times we go around, expecting that society functions in a certain way, based on our previous ideas, and what it did was surprise me and give me some new ideas about how society functions and how trends develop.
Somebody who prefers fiction might not like it. I just thought it was a fascinating book. I would probably give this book four out of five stars. It wasn't the most sensational book, cuz it's not Blink. But it was really fascinating, and I learned quite a bit from it."
