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?

This is a great book, I work in Cognitive Psychology and it really is nice to see a book that is sort of introductory entertaining for non-psychologist but still detailed enough that you can still learn something from it.

Integrity. It is more than simple honesty. It's the key to success. A person with integrity has the, often rare, ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances.

alright... There is much to much name throwing around and not enough substance though. A little too self-help for what i had wanted.
