Why Crucial Decisions Can't Be Made in the Blink of An Eye

Book - 2006
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Outraged by the downward spiral of American intellect and culture, this text offers the flip side to the theory that our best decision-making is done on impulse. If bestselling books are advising us not to think, the author argues, it comes as no surprise that sharp, incisive reasoning has become a lost art.

Oh boy... only two chapters in and having a hard time. Loved Malcolm Gladwell's Blink and thought this would be a good counter-argument. The argument has not yet started however. All that has taken place is general putting down of Gladwell and others - I certainly didn't appreciate the comments about Canadians! I think LeGault has missed the point of Blink - it is not telling us not to think, it is saying that we must trust our gut instincts and prove them right. Gladwell is a wonderful story teller, a researcher and fact collector. LeGault comes off as being a whiney little kid.
