    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 tha

    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 min

    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 kn
