Book of the Week

By Malcolm Gladwell
Aaron's on _The Tipping Point_ written by the same author. Blink started with a *BANG* and kinda poo poo'ed at the end. The book motivated me enough to go to his website ( only to find that his articles were pretty much excerpts from the book. The premise goes trust your gut. He provides lots of compelling examples as to why to trust it: Kouros statue, thin-slicing couple, face reading, and then goes to tell us all the times it doesn't work. Bottom line: trust your gut but question the criteria for the snap judgment. So...I was going to give it five stars but after heavy consideration, it gets a good solid two and a half. Zing!
