News & Opinion: Must Read: Blink
It may seem that I am backpeddling, but I decided everyone should read Blink.
It is a starting point for the conversation about intuition and thin-slicing and decision-making. In every author interview I have done in the last two weeks, Blink has come up. In some cases, it has been to refute assertions by Gladwell (see the John Eliot interview). In other cases, it has been to further expand the conversation on what Gladwell was talking about.
You need to get reading, because in two weeks, and I am going to give you your next Must Read.
P.S. I am still not a fan of the Malcolm Mania.
