Review:

Blink is about the first two seconds of looking--the decisive glance that knows in an instant. Gladwell, the best-selling author of The Tipping Point, campaigns for snap judgments and mind reading with a gift for translating research into splendid storytelling. Building his case with scenes from a marriage, heart attack triage, speed dating, choking on the golf course, selling cars, and military maneuvers, he persuades readers to think small and focus on the meaning of "thin slices" of behavior. The key is to rely on our "adaptive unconscious"--a 24/7 mental valet--that provides us with instant and sophisticated information to warn of danger, read a stranger, or react to a new idea.

Gladwell includes caveats about leaping to conclusions: marketers can manipulate our first impressions, high arousal moments make us "mind blind," focusing on the wrong cue leaves us vulnerable to "the Warren Harding Effect" (i.e., voting for a handsome but hapless president). In a provocative chapter that exposes the "dark side of blink," he illuminates the failure of rapid cognition in the tragic stakeout and murder of Amadou Diallo in the Bronx. He underlines studies about autism, facial reading and cardio uptick to urge training that enhances high-stakes decision-making. In this brilliant, cage-rattling book, one can only wish for a thicker slice of Gladwell's ideas about what Blink Camp might look like. --Barbara Mackoff

Book Description Penguin UK. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Jeder kennt sie: Momente, in denen wir denken, ohne zu denken.Wir nennen sie Intuition oder Bauchgefühl. Aber sie sind viel mehr: Unser Gehirn arbeitet dann auf Hochtouren, um uns die richtigen Entscheidungen zu liefern. Malcolm Gladwell erklärt die Macht dieses Augenblicks und zeigt, wie wir unsere verborgene Intelligenz trainieren und besser nutzen können. Blink!-Momente können jederzeit eintreten - wenn sich Menschen zum ersten Mal begegnen, wenn sie Entscheidungen unter Stress treffen, wenn ihnen plötzlich etwas sagt: 'Hier stimmt doch was nicht!' Malcolm Gladwell erklärt diese Augenblicke der spontanen Entscheidungen und ersten Eindrücke gekonnt und leicht verständlich. Er zeigt, wie unser Gehirn in Blink!-Momenten abgespeicherte Erfahrungen aktiviert, wie wir diese Kunst erlernen und bewusster nutzen können: - In der Liebe - Im Job - Beim Einkaufen - Bei Entscheidungsprozessen aller Art Denn manchmal können zwei Sekunden ein ganzes Leben verändern - BLINK! 304 pp. Englisch.
