The tipping point : how little things can make a big difference by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
107 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 6,977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell looks at why major changes in our society so often happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Ideas, behavior, messages, and products, he argues, often spread like outbreaks of infectious disease. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a few fare-beaters and graffiti artists fuel a subway crime wave, or a satisfied customer fill the empty tables of a new restaurant. These are social epidemics, and the moment when they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping Point." "Gladwell introduces us to the particular personality types who are natural pollinators of new ideas and trends, the people who create the phenomenon of word of mouth. He analyzes fashion trends, smoking, children's television, direct mail, and the early days of the American Revolution for clues about making ideas infectious, and visits a religious commune, a successful high-tech company, and one of the world's greatest salesmen to show how to start and sustain social epidemics."--BOOK JACKET
Blink : the power of thinking without thinking by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
71 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 6,954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How do we think without thinking, seem to make choices in an instant--in the blink of an eye--that actually aren't as simple as they seem? Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others? Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology, the author reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables
Outliers : the story of success by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
61 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 6,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this provocative and inspiring book, Malcolm Gladwell examines everyone from business giants to scientific geniuses, sports stars to musicians, and reveals what they have in common. He looks behind the spectacular results, the myths and the legends to show what really explains exceptionally successful people." "Gladwell argues that, when we try to understand success, we normally start with the wrong question. We ask 'what is this person like?' when we should really be asking 'where are they from?' The real secret of success turns out to be surprisingly simple, and it hinges on a few crucial twists in people's life stories - on the culture they grow up in and the way they spend their time." --
What the dog saw and other adventures by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
34 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 3,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Brings together, for the first time, the best of Gladwell's writing from The New Yorker in the past decade, including: the bittersweet tale of the inventor of the birth control pill; the dazzling inventions of the pasta sauce pioneer Howard Moscowitz; spotlighting Ron Popeil, the king of the American kitchen; and the secrets of Cesar Millan, the "dog whisperer." Gladwell also explores intelligence tests, ethnic profiling and "hindsight bias," and why it was that everyone in Silicon Valley once tripped over themselves to hire the same college graduate
David and Goliath : underdogs, misfits, and the art of battling giants by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
25 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 3,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book uncovers the hidden rules that shape the balance between the weak and the mighty and the powerful and the dispossessed. In it the author challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. He begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy (David and Goliath) those many years ago. From there, the book examines Northern Ireland's Troubles, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, murder and the high costs of revenge, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms, all to demonstrate how much of what is beautiful and important in the world arises from what looks like suffering and adversity. -- From book jacket

Utilizing case studies as diverse as speed dating, pop music, and the shooting of Amadou Diallo, Gladwell reveals that what we think of as decisions made in the blink of an eye are much more complicated than assumed.

In his landmark bestseller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant?in the blink of an eye?that actually aren't as simple as they seem. In his landmark bestseller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant?in the blink of an eye?that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work?in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others? In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police. Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"?filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables

David y Goliat : desvalidos, inadaptados, y el arte de luchar contra gigantes by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hace 3.000 años, en un campo de batalla de la antigua Palestina, un pastor derribó a un poderoso guerrero valiéndose únicamente de una piedra y una honda. Desde entonces los nombres de David y Goliat se han convertido en el símbolo de la lucha entre el desvalido y el gigante. La victoria de David fue inverosímil y milagrosa. No debería haber ganado. ¿O sí? En David y Goliat, Malcolm Gladwell cuestiona el modo en el que pensamos sobre obstáculos y desventajas, ofreciendo una nueva interpretación de lo que significa ser discriminado, vivir con una discapacidad, perder a un padre, tener que ir a una universidad mediocre o sufrir cualquier otro tipo de desgracia. Gladwell parte de la historia real de lo que sucedió hace siglos entre el gigante y el pastor. Desde ahí, David y Goliat analiza el conflicto de Irlanda del Norte, la mente de los investigadores del cáncer y la de los líderes de los derechos civiles, el alto precio de la venganza y la dinámica de las clases que obtienen buenos resultados, y de las que no, para demostrar cuánto de lo que hay de bello y de importante en el mundo se origina en el sufrimiento y en la adversidad. En la tradición de sus anteriores best sellers Inteligencia intuitiva, La clave del éxito, Fueras de serie y Lo que vio el perro, Gladwell recurre a la historia, a la psicología, a la ciencia y a su maestría como narrador para dar nueva forma al modo en que concebimos el mundo que nos rodea."--P. [4] of cover
El punto clave [como los pequen̋̋os cambios pueden provocar grandes efectos] by Malcolm Gladwell ( Recording )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why did crime in New York drop in the mid-90s? Why is teenage smoking out of control? Why are television shows like Sesame Street good at teaching kids how to read? In The tipping point, New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell, looks at why major changes in society happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a few fare-beaters and graffiti artists fuel a subway crime wave, or a satisfied customer fill the empty tables of a new restaurant. These are social epidemics, and the moment when they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping point. Gladwell uncovers the personality types who are natural pollinators of new ideas and trends. He analyzes fashion trends, smoking, children's television, direct mail and the early days of the American Revolution for clues about making ideas infectious. The tipping point is an intellectual adventure story with an infectious enthusiasm for the power and joy of new ideas
Überflieger : warum manche Menschen erfolgreich sind - und andere nicht by Malcolm Gladwell ( Book )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
HauptbeschreibungMalcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intell
