Gladwell includes caveats about leaping to conclusions: marketers can manipulate our first impressions, high arousal moments make us "mind blind," focusing on the wrong cue leaves us vulnerable to "the Warren Harding Effect" (i.e., voting for a handsome but hapless president). In a provocative chapter that exposes the "dark side of blink," he illuminates the failure of rapid cognition in the tragic stakeout and murder of Amadou Diallo in the Bronx. He underlines studies about autism, facial reading and cardio uptick to urge training that enhances high-stakes decision-making. In this brilliant, cage-rattling book, one can only wish for a thicker slice of Gladwell's ideas about what Blink Camp might look like. --Barbara Mackoff --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book is all over the place. Thin slicing, mindreading, autism, microexpressions... He talks about a study, then proceeds to beat us to death with it. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Bob

This was a Christmas gift for my son. It was on his wish list. He drives two hours to and from work each day, and enjoys listening to audio books.Published 9 days ago by Betty Billingslea
I enjoyed this book, but not as much as "Outliers." After reading "Outliers" I was interested in reading another of Gladwell's books. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Woody
