Malcolm Gladwell

Gladwell describes dramatic transformation of changes such as unknown books into bestsellers, as epidemics. In one of his examples, he describes Paul Revere as a “Connector” and a “Maven” who knew almost everyone in the region and had much information about the British.This is why he was able to galvanize the forces of resistance so effectively which may have been a major “tipping point” in the revolutionary war.A few people can make a big difference in the world if certain factors fall in place.
