Description

From the author of The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell's international bestseller Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking is a revolution in the understanding of the mind.

An art expert sees a ten-million-dollar sculpture and instantly spots it's a fake. A marriage analyst knows within minutes whether a couple will stay together. A fire-fighter suddenly senses he has to get out of a blazing building. A speed dater clicks with the right person...

This book is all about those moments when we 'know' something without knowing why. Here Malcolm Gladwell 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.

Customer Reviews

True experience brings a good read

Top notch writing from Gladwell makes this a book that I can't stop recommending.
If you want an insight to your brain or have just been sitting watching "Lie to me" on TV, either way you will enjoy the research that has been laid out for you to help understand your next decision in life.

Amazing

A really interesting read. Recently started studying psychology at AS level so thought this would be good and I have to say I wasn't disappointed :)

Very interesting

If you are interested in the psychology or how the brain works, this book is for you. Lots of real work examples, evidence well laid out and a compelling read. Makes you think about how and why you buy too! An excellent read.
