How do we think without thinking, seem to make choices in an instant--in the blink of an eye--that actually aren't as simple as they seem? Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others? Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology, the author reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.… (mais)

Really enjoyed this book. It talks about how sometimes we make instant judgements, unconsciously that are more accurate than reasoned decisions. it also talks about racism, sexism and incidents between police and citizens and things that can be done to combat them. interesting & fun ( )

This book was such a fascinating read. Although the title is a bit misleading as it sounds like some pseudo-scientific 6th sense crap, this book is nothing of that sort. In fact, this book is exactly the opposite of that; the content of the book is extensively researched with the aid of psychological case studies and isolated experiences that scientific evidence backs up. This book feels more like a meta-analysis of multiple reports written in a story-like narrative to make it more digestible to the readers.

The science behind how our brain is able to crunch unimaginable amounts of data and stimuli to accurately (and sometimes falsely) come up with a decision in a split second, is extremely interesting.

The author also tackles sensitive issues such as racial stereotyping and sexism through real-life examples which successfully provides an alternative perspective to scenarios which we will otherwise perceive as being black and white.

I would highly recommend this book to people who are interested in psychology or anyone who is looking forward to learn something new about themselves. Cause that is what this book exactly does; it takes a concept that you feel as if you are extremely familiar with, and provides a fresh angle that forces you to reconsider your preconceived notions. Extremely intriguing and captivating. ( )

Gladwell is a great writer, its fun and fluid prose but I resent his oversimplifying and re-framing of facts to fit his overall theme. Basically, while you do learn something, you also ignore the counterargument to his point and so might be left with a simple answer that is actually not close to reality. ( )

Fascinating information about how we think and about choices we make in instant -- which are often more accurate than ones we spend time deliberating about. Really interesting case studies too. ( )

Beyond question, Gladwell has succeeded in his avowed aim. Though perhaps less immediately seductive than the title and theme of The Tipping Point, Blink satisfies and gratifies.

If you want to trust my snap judgment, buy this book: you'll be delighted. If you want to trust my more reflective second judgment, buy it: you'll be delighted but frustrated, troubled and left wanting more.
 
"Blink" brims with surprising insights about our world and ourselves, ideas that you'll have a hard time getting out of your head, things you'll itch to share with all your friends.

You can't judge a book by its cover. But Gladwell had me at hello — and kept me hooked to the final page.

As a researcher, Gladwell doesn't break much new ground. But he's talented at popularizing others' research. He's a clever storyteller who synthesizes and translates the work of psychologists, market researchers and criminologists.

We have come to confuse information with understanding.
We live in a world that assumes that the quality of a decision is directly related to the time and effort that went into making it.
The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter.
