Book Overview

In his landmark bestseller 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...

Highlighted Marks

Book had highlighted marks, but is still in good condtion.

Great author.

No exception to other great books by Malcolm Gladwell. Excellent.

Damaged book

This book is listed as "Acceptable" but it was not acceptable at all. I don't know why someone thinks the condition this book was in means it's still okay to sell it. Personally, I would never have sold such a damaged book. I think standards need to be set a little higher before deciding whether or not a book is acceptable for sale. The cover has a permanent dent in it from folding and there are a number of pages that were crumbled at the top. I will try to flatten them out but if I can't, the book will be thrown into the trash because I am not going to keep a book that I can't read. Very disappointed.

Without a Thought !

Blink is a " must read " about the power and accuracy of our first impressions and intuitions about people and events. Malcolm Gladwell skillfully presents several case studies that inspire me to recognize my own intuitive talent and also to notice my tendencies to dismiss my intuitive knowing in favor of analysis and self-doubt. He cleverly examines stereotyping and predjudice, and demonstrates how this influences and distorts our intuition. As a result of this book, I feel more confident and freer to express myself spontaneously! Tuning in to my first impressions is fun and actually gives me a greater sense of well-being and living in the moment, wow! Another great source of well-being and Instantaneous Transformation is Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment by Ariel and Shya Kane. This lovely anthology gives me a window into living with ease and transforms everyday circumstances into life giving opportunities. I can experience enlightenment now! Without any complicated discipline, Guru, or hoops to jump through. Thanks to the Kanes and Gladwell for giving us modern day access to a truly satisfying life.

Entretenido e interesante

Un libro diferente, que aunque trata de investigaciones científicas resulta muy ameno y fácil de leer. Muy bien escrito. Absolutamente recomendable.
