BLINK by MALCOLM GLADWELL(book review)

The power of thinking without thinking!

Your subconscious is really powerful. So much so that a decision it takes is more accurate than thought out, planned ones. The book opens with an anecdote of how experts could tell a kouros was fake within a couple of seconds- though months of research pointed out otherwise.

Absolutely brilliant book! Mind boggling stuff presented in an entertaining and appreciable manner. What is fascinating, is how you start relating to the book and the examples the author gives. You introspect and you realize.

Personally, I love this book! This was gifted to me and I thought this might be drab which went on to enunciate how to master the art of blinking but as it turns out it is quite my cup of tea.

The race test is fascinating(wonder if we can create one specifically for us Indians, should help a lot). The book on the whole makes you think. There is a lot to learn and understand about how you think.

A must read book, as the review on the cover says, “You’ll never think about thinking in the same way again.”
