Anyone read this? I plan on picking it up this weekend FINALLY. It's been out for a while but I hear Colin Cowherd talk about this book all the time on his radio show. I listen to Colin religiously and he has had Malcolm Gladwell on his show a few times recently.

I've read The Tipping Point and it was a very interesting read, I plan on reading Blink and Outliers very soon.

I've heard some good things about The Tipping Point as well. I believe Colin has talked about Blink a time or two as well.

Blink was good but seemed to get redundant- his point was simple but a good one, the book rehashedc it again and again. That being said, it was well worth reading. The forward was the best part imo, story of the kuoros demonstrated his point well. Outliers and The Tipping point sound like good reads as well.
