Thinking without thinking, but not without experience...,
This review is from: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Paperback)
Although I enjoyed the many examples that Gladwell used to demonstrate the apparently amazing art of just 'knowing' something, perhaps I was expecting a little more from this book. It felt as if once he had concluded that the only effective way you can 'think without thinking' is to have a lot of experience (and therefore a measure of expertise in your field), there wasn't a huge amount more he could say. And he came to this conclusion in the first few chapters...
Nevertheless, it was an entertaining book to read on a flight, and particularly his descriptions of autism and facial movements were fascinating.
