Description

In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work, in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?
In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police. Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing", filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.
Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology and displaying all of the brilliance that made The Tipping Point a classic, Blink changes the way you understand every decision you make. Never again will you think about thinking the same way.

Unique and well presented

None of the books of Malcolm Gladwell is a disappointment and 'blink' is not an exception here. It for sure isn't as mindblowing as the 'tipping point', but there is a lot of fresh ideas and unique topics that are clearly worth studying.
You can be sure to find a lot of examples and references to support the author's theories and some findings are truly astonishing. At the same time, I really missed a good summary chapter, as the booked seemed to end unexpectedly.

Good read if you are new to the subject

This book is a great overview on how our subconscious can work to our benefit/disadvantage. It does not go into details but covers a lot of concepts. It’s given me things to ponder and subjects that I’d like to explore.

Might not be suited for listeners/readers searching for ways to improve themselves.

As an audiobook, this book is great. The author is the narrator and it feels like he is talking to you.
