Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren’t as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?”

One thought on “Books

  1. Hi Daniel, This is a really great set of books, some of which are new to me and which i am going to take a look at. In terms of intuition, I feel that there are at least two forms, one closely related to feeling, and another which is the more scientific sense of the word. I have written a short blog about this here if you’re interested:
