January 2017 Book: The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

  • This location is shown only to members

  • The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas.

    Hello - in the second section of the book called The Stickiness Factor Gladwell talks about how you can have a message that goes out to people but if it doesn't stick with them it gets lost in the masses of other messages they receive. Can you think of a commercial or billboard that caught your attention and why it did?

    Hi everyone - I'm going to send out some questions ahead of the meeting for you to think about while we're discussing the book.

    Question 1: In the beginning chapters of the book there is a list of surnames that Gladwell has given to a number of groups to see if they are "Connectors". Take a look at the list and do a count of how many people you know that have these surnames. I tried it myself last night and if I excluded movie stars, my number was about 9. Clearly I am not a Connector!
