Blink is a book that examines how we analyze and make decisions in an instant – in the blink of an eye. We are thinking without thinking, but are things really as simple as they seem? There is a cast of characters in Blink who are able to understand and predict things about people while only having assessed the situation for a few seconds. How are they able to do this? Gladwell explains that it has to do with the art of “thin-slicing,” or picking the variables that matter from the ones that don’t.
