Book to Swap: Blink – The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

Item to be swapped: Book
An amazing read, I would like to swap this for another book by the same author, ideally ‘The Tipping Point’. Or, if you have something similar then I will be happy to consider a swap. Below is a review from Amazon (how lazy of me).

From the author of the bestselling The Tipping Point explores the extraordinarily perceptive and deceptive power of the sub-conscious mind. Gladwell’s major claim is that decisions made very quickly can be every bit as good as a decision made cautiously and deliberately. What we are actually doing is what Gladwell calls ‘thin-slicing’. When we leap to a decision or have a hunch our unconscious is sifting through the situation in front of us looking for a pattern, throwing out the irrelevant information and zeroing in on what really matters. Our unconscious mind is so good at this that it often delivers a better answer than more deliberate and protracted ways of thinking. Much of this is utterly mysterious but some of the most astonishing and useful examples of thin-slicing can be learned. (Review via amazon)
