Review: Blink

Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a very fun, interesting read. I loved all of the studies, stories, and examples. The first chapter laid out Gladwell's thesis and from there example after example was given for the reader to digest.

However, there was never a moment of connecting the dots or really analyzing the overall picture. The "conclusion" was yet another interesting story that did anything but tie the book together. It would have behooved Mr. Gladwell to separate his sections with a little introduction and analysis, and concluded his arguments and thoughts at the end of the book... just like they teach you in English 101.
