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?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.

Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for The New Yorker. He was formerly a business and science reporter at the Washington Post.

  • Wonderful reading

    Well worth the money. Why does Overstock require me to use at least 50 characters in this section?!?!?!? I said it in the first sentence.

  • Blink

    Delightful and informative. Author's insights into gathered data on the human condition are provocative and teach the reader as well.

  • Blink

    This was a great book. Offers insight into everyday decisions that we make plus looks at war and love relationships too. Isn't too scientific for easy reading, but not dumbed down either. Makes interesting discussion. I don't get to read much for pleasure but really enjoyed this book. Giving one to my brother and daughter also. It was better than I was expectingl

  • BLINK by Malcolm Gladwell

    For anyone who has not yet met Gladwell in the pages of The New Yorker magazine, this is a fine introduction. Broad and deep, covering an amazing variety of topics, yet thoroughly engrossing - you'll devour this book in less than 2 days. Great stuff from a story-telling master and a wizard of research.
