Join us as we discuss this month's non fiction book, The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell.  Books are available through the catalog system. Please contact a Reference Librarian at 309-732-7341 about ordering a copy, or place a hold online here: https://search.prairiecat.info/iii/encore/record/C__Rb1880486__SThe%20Ti...

We will meet at Longview Park in Rock Island, Illinois. Bring your own chair or blanket to sit on. This event will be held virtually if adverse weather is expected.

Book Summary:

"Ideas, products, messages and behaviors "spread just like viruses do." Behavior can ripple outward until a critical mass or "tipping point" is reached, changing the world. Gladwell develops these and other concepts (such as the "stickiness" of ideas or the effect of population size on information dispersal) through simple, clear explanations and entertainingly illustrative anecdotes."
