Book #41 Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell

As if there would be a book whose subtitle was the motto of my life, and I wouldn’t read it. Although I do have to say that I don’t like it as much as some other subtitles of recent books. Like “Why Do Men Have Nipples: And Other Questions You’d Only Ask Your Doctor After Your Third Martini” and “100 People Screwing Up America: (Al Franken is #37). Seriously, those are sweet.

And this book is pretty neat too. It goes into the decisions which we make intuitively. How we can’t explain why we feel a certain way, and how sometimes knowing the entire situation or having more information on a case isn’t always a good thing when it comes to our decision about it. It cites a lot of interesting studies and stories so it gave for entertaining reading, even if it wasn’t entirely of a heightened academic writing qualiity.
