|Okay, so when I was looking through the books to read this one really caught my attention. I even put like two stars around it, but then when I got to class the next day I thought, " Why did I pick this book again?" |
However, when I read it, it was actually pretty interesting. Well, interesting enough to keep my attention for a few hours. (I only fell asleep once, guys!) I ended up finishing like more than half the book in 2-3 hours.
"Tipping Point" is basically about how trends cross a certain threshold and can spread worldwide with even the smallest changes. Trends like fashion, disease, TV Shows, and even crime rates. (There was also a very interesting chapter about suicide. Even suicide can be diffused globally! Needless to say, that was the most interesting chapter for me.)
I gave this book four out of five stars because although it kept my attention. There were so many case studies and examples that I was at the point of screaming, " Alright, I got it the first time!" If you're looking for a good book to read, then I would really recommend this one. Plus it's only like 260 pages, not including afterword, and compared to the other books that's pretty short.
