Fascinating read, but lacks conclusion,
This review is from: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Hardcover)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Blink and found the research Malcolm Gladwell had done into the many different aspects of the topic he'd chosen to write about fascinating.
The research presented on interpreted what's going on in the mind from facial expressions was particularly interesting.
I felt the book built to a crescendo, creating a very strong case for there being a resource that we could all tap into that is intuition or blink type decision making or gut feel, but then didn't pull everything together at the end with a conclusion describing how readers of the book could make better use of this resource in their own lives. I eagerly read the chap titled conclusion, but it just presented more (very interesting) material on blink-type decision making. I'm left feeling that I want a bit more on this topic.
I thoroughly enjoyed the read nonetheless and will eagerly look for his next book too. His style is excellent, very readable, the kind of book that makes you want to turn the pages - relatively unusual for a non-fiction book.
