This is my comment :-)
I love Malcolm Gladwell!!! Blink was great and I just read Outliers. I never finished The Tipping Point!
What a great book. Got a chance to hear him speak at the HIMSS show last year. Much better than Colin Powell :)
If it’s anything like his style in “Blink”, I can’t wait to read it!.
These contests have been great at pointing me towards some great info.
Hey! Tipping Point is one of the most influential books for new marketing! Malcolm Gladwell is definitely a great author!
I have not read it, and I’d like to have a copy. This concludes my comment.
Appreciate the giveaways but appreciate your content even more. Keep up the great work!
Hey, I’d be down for one!
Found via twitter instead of your rss feed which sums up where I find things these days. Hopefully Duncan Watts’ quote isn’t entirely true “Itâ€™s wonderfully persuasive only for as long as you donâ€™t think about it.”
an English major who never knew data could look soooooo good.
I have been interested in his books, but I have never read them.
If it helps me be more efficient in restaurants, I’m all for it!
I hope to get this , since it’s on my reading list!
Me, me, me!
This is my comment :)
I would like this book…
hey! I want that book :-)
I loved Blink and I would love to try for a copy of Tipping Point!
Bring it. Love it. Wanna read it. Thanks!
“You are a splendid butterfly, it is your wings that make you beautiful”.
Definitely want to read that.
A small chance to win is better than zero.

I think the whole tipping point theory was disproved by a couple or real scientists a few years ago. Turns out we don’t actually operate through ‘connectors, mavens, and salesmen’, and that memes don’t have a ‘tipping point’, but rather just sort of emerge by happenstance from a lot of different places.
I remember I was really sold on the whole concept when this book came out. Its a great read in the sense that it makes you think about things a little differently. I like pop non-fiction, because it makes me feel like I’m thinking when I’m actually not. Thats what Gladwell does, is summarize interesting sociological studies in a fast paced fun New Yorker tone.
I hope the winner of this enjoys this awesome prize, and reads it with a bag of salt.
Really, I think its a great book, and the lucky winner will have a blast reading it! It’s very anecdotal, and arms you up with interesting things to say to other people that make you sound smart and interesting.
Gladwell is becoming the car wreck I can’t not watch. Nice chap and all, from what I can tell; but a little too smooth and nonchalant. However, this is derived from tertiary-at-best impressions (maybe secondary, if you count his Charlie Rose interview). So, I should read some of his developing canon before deciding.
Looking forward to reading it!
The one book of his I haven’t read. Gotta give it a try!
Sounds interesting… It is always the little things that drive me over the crazy edge.
I enjoyed Gladwell’s ‘Blink’, would love to win this one!
a comment for the masses.
I never win anything.
I need something new to read these days.
Count me in. Thanks!
Are these competitions restricted to people in the US? If I won, would the book get sent to the UK?
Yay for Malcolm!
I won a helicopter ride once, sort of.
This is my comment. It’s made of words, and honey. There’s a little bit of honey added to the comment. Do you taste it? Oh, and garlic.
I am at the tipping point. 18% is customary?
@Scot – open to anywhere Amazon ships
I agree Blink was awesome. I unfortunately did not get to read Tipping Point.
I was just trying to work out what 8pm EST was in GMT – I think I’m within the time limit though :-)
My randomly selected wallpapers say:” Sometimes when I’m alone I use comic sans”.
Woot. making the odds a little worse for everyone else.

Hi from Portland, OR, USA

Here’s a comment!
I read the first chapter of the tipping point at a friends house and then had to leave and I’ve wanted to finish it ever since. So it would be great to win a free copy!
Reading is fun!
hope i win, good luck everyone
me like read
I would like to read the book.
Pick me pick me! :)
Ah, I’m in recent need of a new good book, and anything recommended here is probably worth a look!
I’m hoping it’ll be better than I’ve heard; he seems to generalize broadly from a small number of cases.
count me in!
hopefully this comment will bring me the prize!
Count me in.
Projecting to the moment when I get the “you won The Tipping Point” email. Sweet!
I hear this is a good book. I’d like to read it sometime.
What’s the process for making the random selection?
@Nick – good old-fashioned random number generator
I’d love to read this one!
Been meaning to read this one. Just finished Blink and loved it. Consider me entered.
I read it and passed it on. My copy has probably been read and passed on several times since. I would re-read parts and pass it on — with a note on the front page that I received it from you.
My overly simplistic summary is … It takes 10,000 hours to get really good at something. My recommendation and call to action to my kids, colleagues, and anyone else is — If you are going to invest 5 years of work into something you better make sure it is something you are passionate about and want to do.
Note: The 5 years is probably a bit long – because if someone is really passionate about something they will spend every waking moment that they can doing that thing. My calcs for 10,000 hours are based on a 40 hour work week x 50 weeks per year. I personally don’t work these kind of hours — neither does anyone else I know that is truly passionate about something.
been meaning to read it
I really want to read this!
My comment, please and thank you.
Our new head of marketing mentions this book all the time. I have to read it!
I love that book. This blog is awesome too.
Will my little comment result in massive enlightenment?
I hear it’s a great book – have been meaning to read it. And I’m almost done with my current book!
My entry into the giveaway…thanks for the opportunity!
Tipping Point, Tippy Hedron, Alfred Hitchcock, Vertigo, dizzy, falling, tipping over, here’s a tip: pick me, I ‘ll read it and pass it on!
Gladwell may not be the most intellectually disciplined of writers â€“ he could spend more time actively seeking counter-evidence for his theories â€“ but heâ€™s terrifically thought-provoking. One of my favourite light-reading authors â€“ though Iâ€™ve heard that Outliers is a bit more serious and scholarly than his earlier works. Crossing my fingers.
I heard that is an interesting book….
dang, my odds of winning just went under 1%
Love your site.
