Dr Gordon provides a unique perspective on the dynamics of this worldwide aeconomic epidemica and an innovative Tipping Point Theory methodology for analyzing (and predicting) global events, that are in many ways, influenced by media.

Review Comments:qThe genius of the formulation of Tipping Point Theory is that it takes explicit account of the role of social media and the internet at facilitating bifurcations and promoting dynamical instability. In effect, we have trimmed a few feet of tail off the kite. As a reader, I was informed and educated as to the factors which conspire to influence stability / instability in complex social systems. abthe book does a good job of making sense of past bifurcations and dynamical instabilities, namely political instability, our perception of global climate change, and international economic crisesabMy compliments on a truly insightful Media Tipping Points.q -Prof. Dr.(med.)

Usually, I have trouble reading, theoretical books but this one was an easy read and if you want supporting data then the references are there.
