    The book that became a catchphrase! The term “tipping point” has become so commonly used in news stories that I wonder how many people know it came from a book.
    I read this back in 2000 when I was in grad school for sociology. It’s a fun little book of case studies, many of which applied to what I was learning in my classes. Here it is 13 years later and I can still recall many of the details and theories, which shows how interesting I thought they were….
    Many of these ideas seem to have become part of the cultural zeitgeist. I think I would still recommend it to anyone interested in some pop sociology. [Review from Goodreads]

    Some decent nuggets such as: The stickiness factor is how well something sticks and how using trend setters can help it become more of an “epidemic” feel. Gave several examples and why they worked.
    To sum up the book shows how important A/B tests are and constant tweaks to get to the Tipping Point. [Review from Goodreads]
