News & Opinion: Blink, Think and....Blank?
One of last year's big bestsellers was Malcolm Gladwell's Blink. Since then, two more books have resulted from its success: 1) Think -- "why decisions can't be made in the blink of an eye"; 2) a parody called Blank -- on why we shouldn't think at all. I thought you'd like to see these. In honor of Blank, BusinessWeek's recent issue gave a few more famous books with made-up parodies: Book --> Parody The World is Flat --> The World is Phat: A Brief History of the Hip-Hop Century Freakonomics --> Geekonomics: A Rogue Engineer Explores the Premium Side of Everything The Wisdom of Crowds --> The Mob is Wiser Than You Are
