In the words of the New York Times author Malcom Gladwell, “
“Blink is a book about rapid cognition, about the kind of thinking that happens in a blink of an eye. When you meet someone for the first time, or walk into a house you are thinking of buying, or read the first few sentences of a book, your mind takes about two seconds to jump to a series of conclusions. Well, "Blink" is a book about those two seconds, because I think those instant conclusions that we reach are really powerful and really important and, occasionally, really good.”
I've recently read this book and really enjoyed some of the observations and Gladwell's conclusions. Not sure I agree with everything but it certainly gave me pause to think about decisions I've made. I could not put the book down, compelling reading. Looking forward to discussing this in the New Year!
