by Malcolm Gladwell. Lunch will be served and the the event will begin and
end with a book signing.
A brief description of the book follows: Blink:
The Power of Thinking Without Thinking.
How do we make decisions--good
and bad--and why are some people so much better at it than others? That's
question Malcolm Gladwell asks and answers in the follow-up to his huge
bestseller, The Tipping Point. Utilizing case studies as diverse as speed
music, and the shooting of Amadou Diallo, Gladwell reveals that what
we think of as decisions made in the blink of an eye are much more complicated
assumed. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology, he shows
how the difference between good decision-making and bad has nothing to
how much information we can process quickly, but on the few particular
details on which we focus. Leaping boldly from example to example, displaying
of the brilliance that made The Tipping Point a classic, Gladwell reveals
how we can become better decision makers--in our homes, our offices,
and in everyday life. The result is a book that is surprising and transforming.
Never again will you think about thinking the same way.
