This is a tough book for me to review. I want to not like it, based on its slick presentation, the glib, glowing reviews plastered all over it, and its status as a #1 NYT-Bestseller. And yet, I can't quite say it's not worth reading. Maybe it's not a deep philosophical treatise...so what? It's interesting. Maybe Malcolm Gladwell is writing for a popular audience (And with that haircut, who else could he be writing for?), and yet...somebody has to, besides Danielle Steele! Moreover, I defy Ms. Steele to combine Sesame Street and needle exchange programs so convincingly in one book.
I was constantly walking into other rooms to share a paragraph or two of "The Tipping Point" with whoever else would listen, and though I did not expect to still be thinking of anything I read--even the parts I was so anxious to share--a few weeks after putting the book down, I still am.
