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?

Snap judgments greatly influence the quality of our decision making and our ability to process information in a way that helps. I learned a lot from this one. This was also very engaging the whole way through

Reality TV. Celebutantes. YouTube. Sex Tapes. Gossip Blogs. Drunk Driving. Tabloids. Drug Overdoses. Is this entertainment? Why do we keep watching? What does it mean for our kids? In the last decade, the face of entertainment has changed radically - and dangerously, as addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky and business and entertainment expert Dr. S. Mark Young argue in this eye-opening new book.

An in-depth look at what drives celebities and what that "drive" does to the consumer. very good book. Also gives insight into how the media serves up dysfuntional behavior simply because there are so many with an appetite for destruction. The author proves that narcissism is usually the primary drive to celebrity.

This is a guided walk down memory lane. very thought provoking, a little repetative. But fun none-the-less.
