Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

December 13th, 2005 by Laura Moncur in Literature

View book details at Amazon I just finished reading Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell Sunday night. It was a really interesting book about the power of our minds to make very accurate snap decisions. Some call it intuition or others call it a gut reaction. No matter what you call it, the power of “blink” is a powerful tool.

I was hoping he would give us nice, neat little lists on how to make our instincts better. How to avoid prejudice and how to harness the power of “blink.” Instead, it’s a narrative story about this power with no helpful hints. Malcolm tries to explain why our intuition fails us sometimes and why, in high stress situations, it abandons us completely. It was a very interesting read and here are my favorite quotations from the book.

This was a really enjoyable book and a quick read. Give yourself a weekend with the power of your subconscious.
