Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking is by Malcolm Gladwell. This book looks at "blink-of-an-eye" judgments and decisions we make every day. Why are some of our instincts correct and others faulty? Can we do anything to improve our ability to make snap decisions? Gladwell looks at everything from fake art to "New Coke", from the election of Warren Harding to the police shooting of Amadou Diallo. Another must-read book by this author. You always learn a lot about others and about yourself from his books.
