Blink Blink

For those of you who don't know who Malcolm Gladwell is, he's responsible for the monsterously phenomenonal The Tipping Point.

But if you're like me, and choose to read his new book, Blink, in the store and wait for the library to bring it in, there's a couple of free resources you can turn to.

His website, http://www.gladwell.com/archive.html, has a wonderful archive of his writings. Many of the ideas in Blink actually came from some his articles for the New Yorker.

Blink excerpts can be found here.

You can choose to put him on your iPod, at least for half an hour, if you go here.

passed by mph at citilink mall last night and temptation was too great. got hold of 'blink' and 1 other book which i've always wanted to buy since my vancouver trip, 'notes to myself' by hugh prather.

had been reading the 2 concurrently ever since. as expected, 'blink' had been an engaging read thus far..

hi ernie,nice to hear from you again. dont know the other book, but will check it out. share some lessons you've learnt and i will post it. it's cool to read many books at once. the unconscious cross-referencing can have some amazing effects.

Great book bro. Too tired to browse through contents but I believe in it. The power of intuition to make quick decisions with amazing accuracy.
