Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking Free Audiobook Download by Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference and Outliers: The Story of Success, has published an audiobook entitled Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking. The audiobook is narrated by Gladwell himself. This book discusses the power of the "Blink" in decision making and how it can help us to make better choices without having to think too hard about it.

In Blink, Malcolm Gladwell explores the idea of so-called "thin slices" of experience. These are real-time snapshots in which we can make judgments about a situation based on just a few seconds of observation. Sometimes these judgments are accurate and fruitful, but sometimes they are inaccurate and dangerous.

Malcolm Gladwell's book, Blink, tells the story of a study that pointed to a quick way for people to memorize certain kinds of information. Specifically, the study found that when people were given a word and asked to remember as much of it as they could, those who did well had blinked more often than those who did poorly.

Malcolm Gladwell is an American author and journalist who has written for the The New Yorker since 1996. His books span a variety of topics in popular culture and social science, including The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference; Outliers: The Story of Success; Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking; and David and Goliath.

"This is a book about thinking without thinking," Gladwell begins. "It's also a book about knowing without knowing, an exploration of the moment when deliberation yields to instinct." In this beautifully written and mostly well-researched work, Gladwell presents the reader with many examples from his own life and from the lives of others that show how we can go through our days performing tasks in a focused way but still have no idea why we are doing what we are doing. He shows us how thought trains can lead to dangerous outcomes and that intuition is more powerful than reason.

His latest work is Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking which consists of 5 short stories about how we process information.
