The most important book of the year
You'll hear more about this from me closer to January once the embargo is lifted, but I think you should pre-order this right now: Amazon.com: Books: Blink : The Power of Thinking Without Thinking. Malcolm Gladwell (he of Tipping Point fame) has done it again.
This is a subtle, powerful book about first impressions and the way we make decisions. It completely changed my thinking about a number of things and inspired the new book I'm playing with.
I know it's unusual for me to come right out and endorse a book like this, but Malcolm's latest is that good.
