In his landmark bestseller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell re-defined how we understand the universe around us. Now, in Blink , he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about exactly how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be done in a instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually are not as straightforward as they seem. Why are some individuals brilliant decision-makers, while the others are persistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, but others wind up stumbling in to error? How do our brains actually work, at the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom?
In Blink we meet the psychologist who has realized to predict whether or not a relationship will last, according to a few minutes of observing a few; the tennis coach who understands when a player will double-fault prior to the racket even makes contact with all the ball; the antiquities professionals who recognize a phony at a glance. Here, also, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police. Blink reveals that fantastic decision makers are perhaps not those who process the most details or spend the most time deliberating, but those who've perfected the art of "slender-slicing", filtering the hardly any factors that issue from an overpowering number of variables.
Drawing on cutting edge neuroscience and psych and exhibiting all of the brilliance that produced The Tipping Point a vintage, Blink alters the way you understand every decision you make. Never again are you going to think about thinking the exact same way.
