The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell is about the idea that at a certain volume or quantitative change, there can be a qualitative change. This concept, and the term "tipping point", may now have reached a tipping point when the term appears in popular press and common language.
The book covers some of the small things that can take an idea or item from a rare thing to something popular or frequent. Some of the concepts covered are epidemics, social networks, fashion trends and crime rates.
