The tipping point : how little things can make a big difference by Malcolm Gladwell( Book )

264 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 26 languages and held by 7,945 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
Blink : the power of thinking without thinking by Malcolm Gladwell( Book )

159 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in 22 languages and held by 7,522 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 )

86 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 6,828 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."--Jacket
David and Goliath : underdogs, misfits, and the art of battling giants by Malcolm Gladwell( Book )

89 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 4,987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malcolm Gladwell 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
What the dog saw and other adventures by Malcolm Gladwell( Book )

49 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 4,056 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. From criminology to dog training to ketchup, Malcolm Gladwell takes everyday subjects and shows us surprising new ways of looking at the world. What the Dog Saw is Gladwell at his very best; asking questions and seeking answers in his inimitable style. Sophisticated, surprising and always entertaining

57 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and Russian and held by 2,128 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. These are social epidemics, and the moment when they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping Point
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell( Recording )

30 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 2,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology, he shows how the difference between good decision-making and bad has nothing to do with how much information we can process quickly, but on the few particular details on which we focus
Outliers : the story of success by Malcolm Gladwell( Recording )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 1,959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What the dog saw by Malcolm Gladwell( Recording )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outliers (fueras de serie) : por qué unas personas tienen éxito y otras no by Malcolm Gladwell( Book )

70 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in 17 languages and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them-at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential. In The Tipping Point Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In Blink he changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success
Faces of America : with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faces of America introduces a wide range of cultural figures--representing a vast range of cultural and ethnic roots--to their ancestors and their stories, from the old country through the journey to America. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. traces the family trees of authors, actors, musicians, athletes, educators, intellectuals and discovers stories and figures that had been forgotten or lost through the generations. Through original documents and photos, the program explores the dynamic and shifting relationship America had with new immigrants in the 20th century. Along the way, Gates offers up a rich pageant of immigrant stories and reminds viewers that, if you trace the lineage of almost any American family back far enough, you will find an immigrant story
The person and the situation : perspectives of social psychology by Lee Ross( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new edition of the classic 1991 social psychology text, with a new foreword by Malcolm Gladwell. How does the situation we're in influence the way we behave and think? Professors Ross and Nisbett eloquently argue that the context we find ourselves in substantially affects our behavior. The Person and the Situation explores the complex ideas about personal versus situational determinants of behavior and relates the lessons of our discipline to important political, social, and even philosophical issues. This its the type of book that we have long wished we had available to assign to the serious, critical student who asks, What have we really learned from social psychology? "We offer this book as a kind of throwback to a golden age and as a tribute to our intellectual forebears. We offer it as a 'stand tall and be proud' pep talk for our colleagues in general and for our younger colleagues in particular. We offer it as an olive branch and invitation to more fruitful intellectual dialogue with our friends in personality research (and also to our friends in anthropology and sociology who cluck, with some justification, about our parochialism). We offer it as a slim guide for non-psychologists to the heart and muscle of our enterprise. And last, but not least, we offer it as an invitation to honor the great tradition of Kurt Lewin that links basic theory first to the analysis of socially significant real-world phenomena and ultimately to the task of effective social innovation." Lee Ross & Richard Nisbett With a new foreword by Malcolm Gladwell, and a new afterword by the authors, this timely reissue of one of social psychology's classic texts is essential reading for anyone with an interest in human behavior

Do humankind's best days lie ahead? : Pinker and Ridley vs. De Botton and Gladwell( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Progress. It is one of the animating concepts of the modern era. From the Enlightenment onwards, the West has had an enduring belief that through the evolution of institutions, innovations, and ideas, the human condition is improving. This process is supposedly accelerating as new technologies, individual freedoms, and the spread of global norms empower individuals and societies around the world. But is progress inevitable? Its critics argue that human civilization has become different, not better, over the last two and a half centuries. What is seen as a breakthrough or innovation in one period becomes a setback or limitation in another. In short, progress is an ideology not a fact; a way of thinking about the world as opposed to a description of reality. In the seventeenth semi-annual Munk Debate, which was held in Toronto on November 6, 2015, pioneering cognitive scientist Steven Pinker and influential author Matt Ridley squared off against noted philosopher Alain de Botton and bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell to debate whether humankind's best days lie ahead."--Page 4 of cover

Blink : inteligencia intuitiva, por qué sabemos la verdad en dos segundos? by Malcolm Gladwell( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in Spanish and English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gladwell nos presenta a un psicólogo que ha aprendido a predecir si un matrimonio puede durar con sólo observarles unos minutos; a un entrenador de tenis que sabe cuándo un jugador hará doble falta antes incluso de que la raqueta toque la bola; a un experto en antigüedades que reconoce una falsificación de un solo vistazo. Este libro revela que quienes son buenos tomando decisiones no son aquellos que procesan más información o que dedican más tiempo a deliberar, sino aquellos que han perfeccionado el arte de hilar fino, de extraer los pocos factores que realmente importan a partir de una cantidad desmesurada de variables
