Would you consider the audio edition of The Tipping Point to be better than the print version?

In the sense that it is easier to "read," yes. The print version would taken me forever to read and I wouldn't grasp the general understanding of the book as easy; I study book, I don't read them; a book like this, I would want to take notes, re-read, and take my time... who has time??? But, using my commutes as listening time, allows me to listen more than once and jot down key concepts at traffic lights!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tipping Point?

Understanding the epidemic spread of ideas and how people, the ideas themselves, and their context act to make them epidemological... not only interesting, but also useful for business... and life!

Which scene was your favorite?

Learning about Gore Co. was very interesting for me and also about the beginning of the American Revolution.

If you could give The Tipping Point a new subtitle, what would it be?

I think the current subtitle is perfect!

Would you listen to Outliers again? Why?

Absolutely, the book is so rich in content that it must be listened a few times to grasp a good depth of all the concepts... and to take notes!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Outliers?

The idea of the 10,000 hours and the explanations and exmples provided to support this thesis are memorable. In particular, the rice field examples and the correlation to Asians success in mathematics.

Which character – as performed by Malcolm Gladwell – was your favorite?

He is an excellent writer and reader. Very descriptive, deep, and creative.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How to become great!

Where does The Little Book of Big Profits from Small Stocks + Website rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first audiobook out of two that I have listened so far, both about investment. Although this book is very good and plenty of great advice, it is my second out of two because the second book talks about indexing and avoiding trying to beat the market. If you are dedicated to trading stocks, this is an excellent resource; but if you just want to have your money invested and make it work for you, this might be too much... nonetheless, the more you know the more power you have!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Little Book of Big Profits from Small Stocks + Website?

How supportive and how many resources and tips the author provides. Including the website (which I have yet t visit!!!)

Which character – as performed by Walter Dixon – was your favorite?

No characters in this book

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had some "aha" moments...
