Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking
Author
Malcolm Gladwell
ISBN
9780316172325
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.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Malcolm GladwellPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 01/11/2005ISBN: 9780316172325Pages: 288Weight: 0.84lbsSize: 8.18h x 5.62w x 1.06dReview Citations: Black Issues Book Review 07/01/2005 pg. 23Booklist 09/01/2004 pg. 2Library Journal Prepub Alert 09/15/2004 pg. 46Kirkus Reviews 10/01/2004 pg. 948Black Issues Book Review 11/01/2004 pg. 64Publishers Weekly 11/01/2004 pg. 52Library Journal 11/15/2004 pg. 75Ingram Advance 01/01/2005 pg. 37Quill & Quire 12/01/2004 pg. 25Vanity Fair 01/01/2005 pg. 38Entertainment Weekly 01/14/2005 pg. 92USA Today 01/10/2005 pg. 1New York Times 01/16/2005 pg. 1Library Journal 09/15/2004Entertainment Weekly 12/30/2005 pg. 150Time 04/16/2007 pg. 68Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 88713 / Blink: The Power of Thinking Without ThinkingReading Level: 8.3 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 13
