5The New Master of the Page Turner!!, May 11, 2023
In the past, pageturners have been those books (usually mystery or spy novels) that you simply couldn't put down because they sucked you in for a few hours of enjoyment. With his second book, Gladwell has crafted a book every bit as addicting as "The Tipping Point." Having used "The Tipping Point" as a book for students in high school business programs, I wish I taught psychology, as "Blink" would give me plenty to chew on. Students would thrill to the part about observing the couples for a few minutes to figure out if they will stay together! More importantly, the account of the failed war games can make one pause at the way our military is preparing for war around the world. Just like his previous book, Gladwell gives us plenty to chew on here, which means its effects will linger long after you've read it in a four hour session. Can't wait to see what Gladwell tackles next!

4A perspective that deserves consideration, May 11, 2023
Gladwell attempts to explain how intuition helps us to make decisions. Some of his numerous case studies are compelling, others require more explanation. How we make choices is critical to our success in life and Gladwell provides food for thought. I have adopted his "slicing" concept, tracked my responses, and achieved success. In my opinion, the best book for decision making is Optimal Thinking: How to Be Your Best Self. Glickman shows the reader to make optimal choices no matter what the circumstances -- using logic and intuition.

3satisfied customer, May 11, 2023
Blink is comprised of a combination of multiple stories that are used as examples to demonstrate Gladwell's ideas of how individuals think and how decisions are made. Gladwell focuses on how important first impressions are and how individuals focus on the small things that eventually led him to the power of thinking. In my opinion this is a book for anyone, it is very insightful for any profession and every day life occurrences. It encourages one to trust our instincts and describes the power of our intuitive ability. Blink would also be good if one is curious about how the mind works and the process of thinking. I would recommend this to an individual who enjoys books with case-studies and is looking for a good book that is a fast read. I enjoy reading books with case-studies and I believe that they help one to understand an idea and technique, but I thought Gladwell used too many. I thought he could have fully developed some of his ideas and eliminated others. In addition, I thought he developed his ideas in a chaotic manner. In some of the case studies he started explaining the story and then stopped without finishing. He would then start another case study and finally later on the chapter he would go back to the first one. It made it hard to follow and some of his ideas were confusing. I often did not understand how the case studies fit until he finished them in his later sections. I think his greatest flaw is his randomness. I enjoyed the stories and I found his ideas and techniques insightful, but I believe they would be easier to follow and more effective if they were written in a more organized manner.

3Fun, but..., May 11, 2023
Thanks Malcolm for this fun read. The stories are mildly thought provoking, but nothing that stays with you too long. I was hoping for a way to thinking to help me make a decision about something on which I have too much information. Blink did not help with that. Fun, but...

2Malcolm in the Middle, May 10, 2023
This is Malcolm Gladbag's follow up effort to, "The Power of Farting without Farting," and Bruce Lee's "The Art of Fighting without Fighting." I took the quiz at the end of the book and got an A+. Thanks Malcolm!
