The Tipping Point (book #1)

Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point (2000): study of social epidemics, how things change, character and psychology. I’ve been boring people with examples from this fascinating book. Good sentence: “His wife stayed behind in Boston, so he was free to work long hours” (about William Bratton, head of transit police in New York, who was partly responsible for the improvement in the subway system).

This is a book group book, so I’ll say a bit more about it after the meeting.
