Blink the power of thinking without thinking /

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 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?

  • "Utilizing case studies as diverse as speed dating, pop music, and the shooting of Amadou Diallo, Gladwell reveals that what we think of as decisions made in the blink of an eye are much more complicated than assumed. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology, he shows how the difference between good decision-making and bad has nothing to do with how much information we can process quickly, but on the few particular details on which we focus."

[This book] 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 matters from an overwhelming number of variables. -Dust jacket."
  • "This audiobook is all about those moments when we 'know' something without knowing why. Here Malcolm Gladwell, one of the world's most original thinkers, explores the phenomenon of 'blink', showing how a snap judgement can be far more effective than a cautious decision. By trusting your instincts, he reveals, you'll never think about thinking in the same way again."

  • "Blink explores the concept of rapid cognition and argues persuasively that our snap judgments and first impressions can be educated and controlled. Intuition is not some magical property that arises unbidden from the depths of our mind. It is a product of long hours and intelligent design, of meaningful work environments and particular rules and principles. This book shows us how we can hone our instinctive ability to know in an instant, helping us to bring out the best in our thinking and become better decision-makers in our homes, offices and in everyday life. Just as he did with his revolutionary theory of the tipping point, Gladwell reveals how the power of blink' could fundamentally transform our relationships, the way we consume, create and communicate, how we run our businesses and even our societies. You'll never think about thinking in the same way again."
  • "Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller The Tipping Point, introduced the thesis that ideas, products, and behaviors spread like viruses throughout culture, effecting paradigm shifts and mass behavioral change. His new book Blink, reveals how we can become better decision makers - in our offices, our homes, and in everyday life - by trusting our "rapid cognition," those instant understandings that happen in the blink of an eye. Gladwell was a reporter for the Washington Post from 1987 to 1996; since 1996, he has been a staff writer for The New Yorker."
