Audible Editor Reviews

Now an acclaimed author and journalist, Malcolm Gladwell’s ascent was long and tortuous , much like the subject matter of his groundbreaking works, which mine the psychological depths of success and failure as they relate to both individuals and organizations. Here, the strikingly original Gladwell is paired with an equally inventive interviewer, NPR journalist Robert Krulwich. The two discuss Blink’s resounding success, with Gladwell elaborating on his notion of "thin-slicing" - the tendency of human’s to make spontaneous decisions based on their own narrow, subjective body of experience. Acerbic and amiable, Gladwell proves his points with examples from such far flung fields as science, sales, medicine, and pop culture. Krulwich’s own capacity for thin-slicing is impressive, as he plays a droll devil’s advocate to Gladwell’s ganderings.

    "Captivating"

    These two are, to me, intellectuals with heart and humor. I love both equally; so together, what can I say, but double the fun!
