The Tipping Point is an examination of the social epidemics that surround us.
Malcolm Gladwell from The Tipping Point
"What must underlie successful epidemics, in the end, is a bedrock belief that change is possible, that
people can radically transform their behavior or beliefs in the face of the right kind of impetus.
"But if there is difficulty and volatility in the world of the Tipping Point, there is a large measure of hopefulness as well.
... Simply by finding and reaching those few special
people who hold so much social power, we can shape the course of social epidemics. In the end, Tipping Points are a reaffirmation
of the potential for change and the power of intelligent action. Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable,
implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push - in just the right place - it can be tipped"
