The Power of Thinking
by Malcolm Gladwell
Blink is the book chosen to accompany the Center for Spiritual Living Santa Rosa theme for February 2017
In The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. In Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within.
Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology to reveal that the difference between good decision making and bad has less to do with how much information we process than with our ability to focus on a few particular details. Gladwell shows how we can all become better decision makers — in our homes, in our offices and in everyday life.
—Lev Grossman, Time

—George Anders, Wall Street Journal
"If you want to trust my snap judgment, buy this book: you'll be delighted."
