In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

In the 1920s the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.

Oh what a boring narrator. His monotonous, drab drawl made what could have been interesting material, into a listening sleep aid. It's clear to me that Joe Dispenza is onto something, but the idiots who decided Adam Boyce should tell what that is, really did'nt want anyone to know. I thought I was getting a good deal because the book was deeply discounted, but I was only reminded of the old adages, If it seems to good to be true it usually is &, U truly do get what U pay for. Good riddance.

Do you freeze up when you see an attractive girl? Do you run out of things to say? Do you struggle to attract women through conversation? It doesn't have to be this way. What if you could effortlessly strike up a conversation with any woman, at any time, in any environment? What if you knew exactly how to keep the conversation going (so you never ran out of things to say)? What if you could command women's attention and instantly connect with them? What if you could turn any conversation from boring to sexual?

the information is good & relevant, but sound quality was horrible. the author was engaging though he sounded like he was in a deep well echo chamber. overall good foundational info for those in need. he makes everything simple and clear to accomplish.
