Usually I don't comment on books, but blink was a great one. Really applicable to what is going on the world today. Especially enjoyed reading about split second cognitive thinking with gun attacks. So true how it relates to officers and how they don't have much time to respond. Less than we think anyway
This was so pathetic! After tipping point, The author hasn't had anything to write about. I got nothing out of this book and to make it worse, Malcolm narrates like an elementary school teacher. There was nothing of substance and was a complete waste of time.
As always he is a delight to read and gives interesting and useful insights. Compared to some of his other books, the topic of Blink is rather simple, but still valid.
Maybe the book is a bit long compared to what it tries to tell: Thin slicing is very powerful, but can only be trusted and used in situations where a person all ready have a lot of competences.
I was a little surprised with the treatment of the topic. I had heard of the book and its subject and did not think it would be so well and so interestingly handled. I was brilliant
Incredibly beautiful writing, he is such a fantastic narrator and writer you must work to fully appreciate the science. I see thin slicing everywhere and I was blind before.
