not as good as it looks,
This review is from: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Paperback)
the examples are interesting to begin with but then just repeat througout the book. the major concepts (thin-slicing etc.) could be dealt with effectively in a book a quarter the size - i feel most of it is just padding. no sense of great insight here, just a few good ideas that would have been better presented in magazine articles (which is apparently the authors natural habitat). mr gladwell does, however, have magnificent hair.
