批評家のレビュー

"Malcolm Gladwell goes deep into the reliability of hunches, instinct and instant, apparently irrational understandings. It appears that they are all aspects of an important survival mechanism, the one that makes us jump the right way when we stumble jay-walking as a lorry hurtles towards us. Full of fascinating theories about how science can be duped more often than our unsonscious minds can, Gladwell ranges from art fakes and gambling to marriages in jeopady and job interviews. I was instantly convinced." ( The Times)
"Brilliant." ( Observer)
"Astonishing." ( Daily Mail)
"Compelling." ( Evening Standard)

あらすじ・解説

Intuition is not some magical property that arises unbidden from the depths of our mind. It is a product of long hours and intelligent design, of meaningful work environments, and particular rules and principles. This audiobook shows us how we can hone our instinctive ability to know in an instant, helping us to bring out the best in our thinking and become better decision-makers in our homes, offices, and in everyday life. Just as he did with his revolutionary theory of the tipping point, Gladwell reveals how the power of blink could fundamentally transform our relationships - the way we consume, create and communicate, how we run our businesses, and even our societies. You'll never think about thinking in the same way again.

Good but flawed

This is the third Malcolm Gladwell book I have listened to (or read), and like the other two, it is really interesting, but just a little bit unconvincing in parts. He is a brilliant storyteller, drawing you in with interesting anecdotes about a man who can pick winning horses by observing their body language and a rogue soldier who outwits the entire US army in a war game scenario. But towards the end of the book his argument loses its way.

As the book progresses he gradually builds a convincing theory about how our minds are adept at making accurate instantaneous judgements and how, in many cases, the more information we are given the less likely we are to judge well.

But then he starts to make some slightly dubious claims and even to contradict himself somewhat. He tells the story of 4 policemen who kill an African American in a bad neighbourhood at night because they think he has a gun. He says that the stress of the situation gives them ‘temporary autism’ which robs them of their normal powers to make ‘blink’ judgements. But you just don’t need this theory to explain why they misjudged the situation. It was dark, and the inability of the men to detect the innocence and terror on the victim’s face could be explained by this alone.

Later on he describes another policeman, who had received training in controlling this kind of panic reaction in dangerous and stressful situations, and because of this training, when faced with an armed youngster, he waited a little longer and gathered more information and decided not to shoot. But this contradicts the main idea of the book, which is that we make better decisions when we allow our intuition to do it in a blink.

So, by the end of the book, you have been entertained and have also been persuaded that humans often make better judgements when they ‘thin slice’, i.e. they make quick unconscious decisions based on very limited information. But, in my opinion, he tries to over-elaborate his theory in the later chapters, and I felt myself disagreeing with him, which spoilt the book a bit.

Amazingly written and read.

If you happened to like any of Malcolm Gladwell's books, you will surely like this one. For me , it is even better than the previous ones. I think negative reviews might have been influenced by exceedingly high expectations.

Eye opener

Excellent and inspiring book - of the matter of intuition as well as actual issues concerning us all - such as police shootings or effective markting of products.
A minor but unusual and very nice detail: this audiobook is actually modified slightly from the written edition, so it consistently makes sense to a listener as oposed to a reader.

Very perceptive book and a good sequel to Tipping Point. I am currently on my second way through it and enjoy the open approach that has been taken.

Gladwell tells excellent stories to back theories

I loved how Gladwell explains how much information we can gather in a blink of an eye. He goes on to show his findings through research and stories.

I feel wiser and love re-quoting the stories to other people.

Great audio - and well read.

A book that does not bear a second read

Hmmmm. I read this when it first came out and was impressed. Reading it again however was underwhelming. The curos story was silly for example. The author makes a big deal about how all the documentation was unquestioned and then later admitted that addresses, etc were inconsistent. Thin slicing may be true but this book does not make a good case for it. If I thin - sliced this book before it was a 5 star it is however 3 now. Sorry.

Very Average...

Blink is a very successful book which covers the subject of intuition. I expected great things from this and the audiobook got off to a flying start with Gladwell's playful and confident reading style. I kept expecting the audiobook to then ramp up past what was fast becoming a very long-winded introduction...except it wasn't and by now I was onto the third chapter. Whilst providing some interesting examples, this book does little else than state the obvious...again and again and again....it feels like a lot of newspaper clippings all pulled together (which some say is exactly what it is). For such a successful book I had such high expectations and for the most part this book failed to deliver...I found myself becoming increasingly bored.

Missing anything about neural networks.

This book could've been more informative about how the subconscious brain works as a neural network which is very good at pattern recognition. Instead it becomes a series of anecdotes about conscious bias and prejudice. It's still informative but not very helpful to improve ones subconscious brain other than external management.

I really liked this book and purchased after listening to Outliers but I was really disappointed with the production and would of given it 5 stars if there wasn't the annoying and distracting background music.

Enjoyable, but goes in an unexpected direction

I enjoyed listening to this. Gladwell interweaves gripping stories with interesting psychological information very effectively. Like another reviewer, however, I was a bit surprised with the direction this took. It started out being about the powers of the unconscious and how experts can make very complicated judgements almost instantaneously. It seemed to promise to tell the reader how to harness the power of the unconsious. But then it swerved much more into exploring how snap judgements can be bad, and ended up being about the nature of prejudice. This was very interesting (possibly more interesting than the direction it had been heading in), but definitely a bit unexpected.

A little disappointing

Maybe it's just me, (it probably is), but after having great expectations of this book, it seemed rather dull.
The root of it's premise is repeated in various ways and guises, and the conclusions seem, well... Obvious.
Won't be revisiting it, but you may well feel quite differently.

Brilliant!

I love this kind of book. If you are even mildly interested in why people do what they do, this book is another must (as well as Predictably Irrational*). It's all in plain English, and it's all fascinating.

I would recommend this book. In fact, I have to many friends.

Get it!

I love Malcolm Gladwell but after reading Outliers, which I loved, , this one didn't keep my interest to the end. a little too much detail that lost the relevance for me.

Feels like a tabloid, and poor audio

Maybe I had misguided expectations, but for me it felt like a science infused tabloid with overly lengthy storytelling, missing theories and terribly poor quality audio with extremely annoying music snippets. Besides one or two stories, it didn't really give anything. (But I'm pretty well-read in behavioural sciences.)

Boring

i did not like this book at all. i think that its not written for people who often use rapid cognition. more for the boring office worker who doesnt ( if they think at all). i found the author gets lost a lot in his analogies and struggles to bring it back to the topic. if you wanna play word association with no goal, learn about facial muscles in latin or market research about coke vs pepsi then go for it. if you want an intellectual discussion about the pscology of rapid cognition, id suggest something else.

such an interesting collection of stories in here. if you liked tipping point you'll love this one too. it is one of those audio books where you will sit in the car in the driveway to finish a chapter if you arrive home with 20 minutes to go.

Great book!

This book is excellent but i do feel and hope that the concepts of racism and discrimination are outdated or soon to be. Certainly in Australia where i live things are a bit different to the US. But still the findings of Malcolm Gladwell are brilliant & worth everyone reading/listening

Good Read - Not quite as engrossing as his others

I think going from his latest book that was an audio journey as such with interviews and different voices, impacted my enjoyment of this earlier novel. Overall, a very insightful book, but I did find the explanations became quite long and sometimes I found myself tuning out as it where.
