Blink is about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant —in the blink of an eye — that actually aren’t as simple as they seem, and about those instantaneous decisions that are impossible to explain to others. In Blink, staff writer from The New Yorker Malcolm Gladwell 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 “thin-slicing” — filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.

Very nice idea. I actually heard about this book when I attended a video conference seminar last year, it was about leadership skills, among the speakers were:Stephen Covey, Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Branson (the owner of Virgin), and others. I really liked how Malcolm Gadwell was talking about this issue, back then his hair was long and he talked in a fast manner, and every five minutes clicking his fingers to show how fast a mind makes decisions,,, he was so cute 🙂

Anyway, the book itself is nice, it is quite small in size, but I don’t know why I couldn’t manage to finish it all ! weird hein? I like the idea and how demonstrated it, bas howa kan beilet we ye3gen keteer, and giving tooooo much examples and stories, okay I like stories in soft skills books, but not to that extent. It is readable…
