Tipping Point

Yes, I’ve got the book. Now I shall proceed to read it. Like all American books, it’s not content with explaining a phenomenon. No, it has to go one step further and tell you how “you can harness the power of this phenomenon for yourselves to start trends”. Otherwise what’s the point of reading a book, eh? Surely not for knowledge itself!
Went to Leeds with Ioannis yesterday to pick up Panos. All we saw of Leeds was the so-called “Loop Road” which was quite helpful, if we’d known of its existence beforehand. Managed to find the coach station quite easily though.

Much later:- Okay, finished reading it. An absorbing book, it took a while to catch on but then went pretty well. Certain things about it are very interesting and worth knowing, but it could have been better written.

  1. oops sorry i’m too slow in “harnessing the power of this phenomenon” but i think u will enjoy it very much! u’ll probably finish reading it before me so i expect a summary!

    Naz responds:- I mean that nowadays a book has to “sell” you something rather than being a book for a book’s sake. Am I making myself clear? It’s just a trend that I believe has emerged from the wave of “management books” of (70’s?) America, starting perhaps with Lee Iococa or Ioaccca (Chrysler. I have no idea how it’s spelt)

  2. Yes Naz, we’ve been hearing about your dubious skills in navigation today actually! 😛

    Naz responds:- Rach, good use of dubious. 😛

    I am guilty of taking Shasha the wrong way (just as I type it I see the comedy potential here. Pun totally not intended) to the airport, which is basically one straight road where I forgot to tell her where to come off. So the real tribute is to Ioanni’s driving skills.

    Naz responds:- I forgot to ask permission. Please don’t punish me.

    p.s. Good use of Spanish.
