      Here s Blink in a nutshell Split decisions can be good better than decisions where we take a lot of time to carefully weigh our options and use scientific evidence Except when they re not.Rapid cognition is an exciting and powerful way to use your brain s quick, intuitive capabilities to make stunningly accurate decisions, and can even lead you to have better success in sports, business and politics Except when it won t.We should learn to trust our snap judgments, even in seemingly complex situa [...]

    2. Doc Opp on said:

      As an empirical psychologist by training, I get very annoyed at journalists who simplify things to the point that its no longer even remotely accurate Such is the case for Blink This is especially annoying to me, because the book describes my area of research specialization If you re interested in a fun read, Gladwell is certainly an engaging author If you re looking for something that accurately describes the research, I d recommend looking elsewhere For example, Scott Plous s the psychology of [...]

      Blink is what all the stories, case studies, and arguments add up to an attempt to understand the magical and mysterious thing called Judgement Its basic premise is split second decisions snap judgements how they can be good and bad Gladwell suggests split seconds decisions are better than the decisions where we take considerable time to weigh our choices and options He points out that our mind figure things, people, et al in a blink of an eye And it is often that these snap judgements are much [...]

      I think this book wins my prize for Most Easily Misinterpreted to Serve Personal Agendas Gladwell gets so into the interesting details of the case he s building, he really doesn t emphasize the final conclusions of the book at all, leaving people to think that the interesting details are the whole point, which is unfortunate But then again, I m not 100% sure I got the whole point.Most of the folks I know think that this book is about how a person s gut instincts can be a better read of a situati [...]

    5. Ashley on said:

      I would put this book in the category of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point By the same author as the latter title, Malcolm Gladwell, the purpose of this book is to weigh the advantages as well as the disadvantages of the power of the mind s ability to unconsciously leap to conclusions based on what is seen in the proverbial blink of an eye While I have read some negative reviews of Gladwell s book, mostly citing that he fails to inform the reader how to know when to go with your gut and when no [...]

    6. Saleh MoonWalker on said:

      .We need to respect the fact that it is possible to know without knowing why we know and accept that sometimes we re better off that way.

    7. Diane on said:

      O, to have the writing career of Malcolm Gladwell The man pulls interesting case studies from academic research and news headlines, spins it into a book under a general theme, and blammo He has a bestseller This formula worked for him with The Tipping Point and then Blink Blink is a compelling read, despite its weak overall theme, which is that sometimes split second decisions are good and sometimes they re bad, and we need to learn when to trust our first impressions and when to discount them e [...]

    8. seak on said:

      Much like the reason behind my majoring in Economics, I like Gladwell because he opens my mind to new ideas and new ways to think Much like Economics, I believe he s far from perfect, but I really enjoy viewing the world through his lens In just about anything, when people start acting as if there is only one way to do something, I stop listening to them This goes for many things, but especially politics If you DO, however, find someone who is omniscient and knows exactly how every policy will t [...]

    9. Will Byrnes on said:

      This was a big best seller for Gladwell He posits that much of the time we make decisions, reach conclusions in a sort of pre conscious manner that he calls thin slicing That means taking a very small sample, a thin slice, and making a decision immediately based on that information However, it is the case that the ability to evaluate that slice is fed by a lifetime of experience It is not simply, as some, including President Bush the second, might believe, that using one s gut, in the absence of [...]

    10. Kemper on said:

      I generally distrust anyone who says that they go with their gut But when the company I work for announced a major decision a few years back, I instantly said, This is going to be a huge mistake Smart people had examined the deal backwards and forwards for months and thought it was a great idea I had a bad feeling about it that I could only later explain, and I was far from the only one And we were right The entire thing turned out to be a huge disaster I kept thinking about that incident when I [...]

      so i bought this book in boston s logan airport about 10 minutes before i had to board a flight to seattle the bookstore was limited i didn t want to have to work to get interested and the first 100 pages or so did the trick until i realized that gladwell wasn t so much building an argument as telling stories about a certain topic don t get me wrong, i finished the book later back in boston, on the T and it did cover some interesting studies, or i wouldn t have done so but i suspect the author m [...]

    12. Ed on said:

      I didn t learn much from this book that I did not already know I am beginning to suspect that Malcolm Gladwell is not writing books that uncover valuable facts that we should know, but rather is writing books that restate facts we already know but in an interesting way.I like his anecdotal stories very much which is why I finished the book hoping for stories When he lays out the facts, though, his writing is no interesting than any other scientific author So, in summary, what we have is a tale [...]

    13. Riku Sayuj on said:

      Probably the best among Gladwell s books He still stands true to his success mantra Gladwell The Power of Inductive Reasoning But, it was still a well researched and informative book Blink.

    14. Carolyn on said:

      Equally as fascinating as Gladwell s other book The Tipping Point Really makes you think, consider your decisions differently Quotes But in the end it comes down to a matter of respect, and the simplest way that respect is communicated is through tone of voice.Of the tens of millions of American men below five foot six, a grand total of ten in my sample have reached the level of CEO, which says that being short is probably as much of a handicap to corporate success as being a woman or an African [...]

    15. Connie on said:

      Malcolm Gladwell engagingly writes about how decisions made in a blink snap judgments can be very good A series of entertaining anecdotes and psychological studies show that first impressions can be good in some cases, especially in areas where people have experience He also writes about experts who analyze facial expressions, and how autistic people have trouble making certain types of judgment calls.But then he goes on to show how our unconscious mind can also be very prejudiced Tall men are [...]

    16. AnaVlădescu on said:

      A really great study on how important the first few seconds of anything can be, in any particular situation Be it that you re an art expert who instantly knows an object is fake, or a police man who thinks that the victim is pulling a gun out of their pocket rather than a wallet, it s very clear that human beings do have this constant auto pilot running, an unconscious survival mode that gives us most of the clues we might need in the blink of an eye, and sometimes those clues might be wrong.

    17. Trevor on said:

      Elsewhere, in one of my other recent reviews, a GoodReads friend Richard told me that he had become less infatuated with this book after reading a review by a specialist in the field who gave it a drubbing I was worried that knowing this might ruin this book for me but it has not I really enjoyed this one too This is the third of Gladwell s books I ve read in quick succession and this contained lots of information about things that have made me think and sparked my interest to learn It may well [...]

    18. Jenny (Reading Envy) on said:

      I find this book to say very little in the end, at least, little that is useful or that I can apply We make split second judgements Some people accurately than others This does not always mean what we think it means.Okay.I guess when the subtitle of a book has the words power and thinking in it The Power of Thinking Without Thinking , I expect to gain something from it Instead I feel like the author explains all the reasons why we should not be relying on snap judgements, despite the fact that [...]

    19. Otis Chandler on said:

      A must read really interesting stories about how people process things unconsciously for instance, you can t hide your feeling about race from your unconscious take the Race Test understandingprejudice It said I and 13% of test takers have a moderate automatic preference for European American compared to African American It also said 48% of test takers have a Strong automatic preference for White people crazy I loved the bit about President Warren Harding enpedia wiki Warren_H , who according to [...]

    20. Greg on said:

      I was really expecting from this book I ve heard mostly good things about Gladwell, and he had a pretty interesting TED talk, and I enjoy almost anything to do with the brain, sowhy not The book certainly brought up a lot of interesting ideas and did a good job of discussing the different elements that go into the snap decisions that we make every day And it s probably worth a read for many of the stories and experiments related But for the most part this book really failed to impress More than [...]

      Gladwell continues his exploration of counter intuitive ideas about decision making in BLINK He opens with a 1983 incident at the J Paul Getty Museum The Museum acquired a rare statue from the Greek archaic period To this day, the Museum maintains that the authenticity of the statue is uncertain At the time, however, the Museum was certain enough to acquire the piece for just under 10 million Documentation, and scientific analysis had been relied on as support However, numerous experts including [...]

    22. Snezan on said:

      This work is worth a read, if not than one I hesitate to say too much, since I believe the conclusions it reaches are explored in the very beginning and will immediately inform the reader of its relevance I don t know why that came out so long winded, the reader will find out how interested they are by the first or second chapter.I found the book fascinating for its close look into social interactions, particularly between two people, and for explaining why i sometimes I think the way that I do [...]

    23. Hirdesh on said:

      3.5 stars Review to come.It wasn t upto the mark as I had expected.

    24. Hannah on said:

      1 Star Horrible book.Against my better judgement I gave another one of Malcolm Gladwell s books a try Oh, what precious reading time I wasted on this book My feelings on this book are quite similar to how I felt about The Tipping Point How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference my review so I ll keep this review short My first thought after finishing this was did I really just read 200 pages on what is essentially the good and bad of gut reactions There was nothing new for me here and that may [...]

    25. Rohit Enghakat on said:

      Blink is an interesting read The book is about making decisions in the blink of an eye, to be precise The author says that decisions which are made instantly are far fruitful than those made with long drawn research and logical thinking He cites many examples which are also interesting to read For example, the description of the Amadou Diallo incident where police officers shot an unarmed black immigrant in New York with forty one bullets was stunning Equally interesting was the last example of [...]

    26. Mike on said:

      Blink is an elegant 5 Star piece of science writing, dealing with how we think and chose in an instant We make snap decisions based on experience or some other basis Sometimes that is good and sometimes not There are many good reviews so I am not going to spend time on a review What I will point out are two examples of how this book remains relevant today.First example is the recent campaign by Coca Cola to sell specially colored white silver cans of Coke over the 2011 2012 winter season to sup [...]

    27. Zinta on said:

      Where does it all go, after you are done experiencing the experience, thinking the thought, feeling the feeling Nothing is ever lost The subconscious is like a vast warehouse, limitless, in fact, and as Malcolm Gladwell illustrates in Blink, we access all that is stored in that warehouse with every blinking and waking moment.Usually, we call this instant access gut instinct Or, the inner voice of wisdom Instinct, however, is nothing magical or mysterious It is simply our accumulated and stored k [...]
