Outraged by the downward spiral of American intellect and culture, Michael R. LeGault offers the flip side of Malcolm Gladwell's best-selling phenomenon Blink, which celebrated impulse thinking over factual knowledge or critical analysis. If best-selling books are advising us to not think, LeGault argues, it comes as no surprise that sharp, incisive reasoning is on the decline, leading our society to incompetence and failure.

What disappointed you about Think!?

That it contained almost no critical thinking. The author used the cover of sound critical thinking to make a case for his political views.

Would you ever listen to anything by Michael R. LeGault again?

No

What aspect of Michael R. LeGault’s performance would you have changed?

It wasn't his performance that was the issue. It was his lack of balanced thought.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No--but I will use it in my critical thinking class as an example of dogma posing as balanced thought.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointing. A missed opportunity.
