4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Frugal
By Parthss89 on 11 July 2020
This is the 2nd book of Malcom gladwell that I've read after 'outliers'. As per the name of the book, Blink is the book about the "first two seconds".

The book is all about snap judgements, that reveals the sceret of fast and frugal judgements based on little information. Gladwell points out that snap judgements are better than the decisions where we take considerable amount of time and through our choices and options. This split second decisions are based on "adaptive unconsciousness".

But are the snap judgments derived from adaptive unconsciousness or rapid cognition always reliable??
The answer is No.
Author doesn't stop just stating the positive sides of snap judgments, he also explains negative incidents across the world.
Why does the blind test for coke turn into disaster? Why Diallo got killed by police?

But he also gives the proper approach to snap judgments. Thin-slicing, refers to ability our unconscious mind to find patterns in situations and behaviour based on narrow slicses of experiments.

Blink is an interesting and compelling read, it's very well written, engages your mind from start to end. I would like to recommend this book to anyone who's trying to learn and think better as it helps in all aspects of life. Also, those who are studying psychology must give it a try.
