"Not his best"
While I enjoyed blink, if did not hold a candle to outliers of the tipping point. Still worth a read
"this is a great read!"
highly recommend this audio because malcolm reads it so well. looking forward to reading more of his books.
"Insight into the unconscious"
Loved this intelligent yet uncomplicated recounting of very complex subject matter. Fascinating and kept me engaged to the very end.
"Very long winded"
The concepts were interesting but often the point was laboured for hours it got quit tedious towards the end.
Mr Gladwell has collected an interesting set of anecdotes loosely connected to short time spans and pulls them together without much logic or structure and with many internal contradictions. Sometimes experts are people who have analysed their topic (e.g. food) so that they have access to their sub-conscious whereas non-experts flounder around with holistic impressions, sometimes experts have such finely tuned intuitions that they can instantly say that, for example, a statue is fake, but they have no access to the (highly trained) sub-conscious that tells them this. Ignore pedants like me, Mr Gladwell's amiable muddle-through will provide entertainment and food for thought (especially about prejudice) for any reader.
"Did I miss something"
Or could this have been summarised in about two pages ..... The premise I agree with but talk about labouring a point ....
"Fascinating and Compelling"
Excellent. I am sure I will listen to this again and again.
This book really makes you rethink how you think.
Opportunist crap. This guy doesn't have any theory, ideas, nothing. He just wanted to make money with this.
"Insightful and couldn't put it down"
Love the stories of small moments but big leanings. Gladwell is my hero and dream dinner guest! Blink or you'll miss it
