Book Review: Blink by Malcolm Gladwell


After a long time, I finally completed the book which I started long back, Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. This book uncovers the decisions made during those fleeting moments which often get neglected otherwise. The author explains what theĀ “gut feeling” actually is.

It may sound like a very small topic but those fleeting moments matter most when it is a matter of life and death. The author explains how police officers had to deal with this on daily basis and how difficult that decision is. There are many stories which discuss the events in the story, followed by the explanation of what actually have had happened.

Blink has a small topic overall but the author has shared some of the most dreadful events in history which got defined in those split seconds. It was an interesting read overall. I would give 3.5/5 rating to this book.
