Friday Reads: The Tipping Point

It's Friday! You made it! This week, Library Director David Stanley tells us about a book he's currently reading, The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell.

David Stanley is reading The Tipping Point. 

"The book to read if you want to think about why things happen. How do epidemics start? Why was Paul Revere’s ride so successful when William Dawes’s was not? How do some things become 'the in thing' for young people, or older people, to have to have? What causes rises and falls in crime rates? These and more are discussed. According to the author they all follow a similar developmental process which leads to a tipping point. It makes you look at just about all events with a new curiosity."
