    Intuition is not some magical property that arises unbidden from the depths of our mind. It is a product of long hours and intelligent design, of meaningful work environments, and particular rules and principles. This audiobook shows us how we can hone our instinctive ability to know in an instant, helping us to bring out the best in our thinking and become better decision-makers in our homes, offices, and in everyday life.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! Great performance by Malcolm, excellently read and a different and intriguing concept


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blink?

    Chapters 5 & 6 stood out for me and really tied the book together with great studies on Coca cola, Pepsi, The Amadou Diallo shooting and musician 'Kenna'


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The case study of Amadou Diallo was excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a Life changer but a solid concept and idea that does help you consciously change your bad thinking habits.. Recommended but not a MUST HAVE for me.

    With more than 40 years of experience practicing traditional Zen, Jakusho Kwong-roshi removes some of the mystery surrounding this enigmatic philosophy through clear instruction in its core principles and how it relates to our everyday world, including methods of zazen meditation, why delusion is inseparable from enlightenment, turning our light inward, and more.

    Felt this one was a bit stale... I found it bland in its message and delivery. Maybe this is because I listened to it right after 'You're It' by Alan Watts (life changer) and my expectations had to been set to high in comparison. Either way, I would recommend purchasing 'You're It' before giving this one a go.
