Editorial Reviews

Review

Centola describes networks in which users have a greater degree of empathy towards others, as well as the means to compare themselves to each other. These networks can increase the adoption of complex contagions.---Nina Jankowicz, New Scientist

"In social networks, as in media networks, content matters―the types of behaviors that propagate through networks shape the kinds of structures best able to propagate them. Clearly and elegantly written, brimming with fresh ideas, and based on cutting-edge experimental techniques, How Behavior Spreads is an essential addition to the core bookshelves of social scientists who care about networks and social change."―Paul DiMaggio, Princeton University

"Just when we thought there was nothing new to say about diffusion through networks, along comes How Behavior Spreads. Filled with refreshing, novel arguments that distinguish simple from complex contagions, this book concludes with innovative online experiments and provocative proposals for beneficial social engineering. I urge widespread diffusion of its outstanding ideas."―Mark Granovetter, Stanford University

"Well-organized and well-written, How Behavior Spreads shows that complex and simple contagion processes are different, and that these differences are important for understanding a wide class of diffusion outcomes."―Peter Bearman, Columbia University

"Developing an original perspective on diffusion via networks, this book's model and evidentiary approach are distinctive."―Peter Marsden, Harvard University

“This book is extraordinary. While theorists expect behaviors to spread across networks more effectively through weak ties than strong ones, Centola shows otherwise. He not only makes a convincing case that ‘complex contagions’ are different but also traces the implications into real-world contexts, such as efforts to improve public health. The ideas in this book are original, profound, and thought provoking, and the writing is clear, lively, and accessible. How Behavior Spreads is at once a terrific introduction to the study of diffusion and a powerful yet constructive challenge to some of its most cherished assumptions.”
―Mario Luis Small, Harvard University



How Behavior Spreads offers important new insights for those committed to improving the health of populations by promoting healthy behaviors. Centola articulates a compelling theoretical framework, backed by experimental evidence, for how behaviors and ideas spread in networks. The armamentarium for health professionals has just expanded.”―Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, University of Pennsylvania
