by Malcolm Gladwell

This book, Malcolm Gladwell’s latest, focuses on something completely different from his earlier ones, “The Tipping Point,” and “Blink.” The Tipping Point is about how small factors can add up to cause a big change, or, to tip something over.

Review: "Wagner Power Tex" Texture Sprayer

Over the end-of-the-year holidays, I have been busy remodeling some rooms in my house. We recently had new flooring installed, and so all the rooms had been cleared for that job.

Book Review: "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell

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

by Malcolm Gladwell

After listening to this book twice, I am beginning to appreciate how seemingly miniscule things often change the outcome in many situations. We tend to focus on the “big” things and wonder why something didn’t quite turn . . . → Read More: Book Review: "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell
