Now reading: 'Blink' by Malcolm Gladwell

I'm currently reading the latest from Malcolm Gladwell, entitled Blink. I've had this book for a few months and am finally getting the chance to actually read it.

The book talks about the power of "thin slicing," or of our natural ability to eliminate any extraneous information in order to make a decision or reach a conclusion quickly. Gladwell writes about how this ability that we have to quickly process information can be as harmful just as it can be helpful.

It's a pretty insightful book written by an excellent writer. I'm about half way through it and I can safely say that once I've finished it, I will definitely be checking out Gladwell's previous book, The Tipping Point.
