Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking


Intuition is not some magical and mysterious property that arises unbidden from the depths of our mind. This book 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 everyday life.

‘Mesmerizing’ Time

An art expert instantly spots a fake. A cop decides whether to shoot. A psychologist accurately predicts a couple’s future in minutes. This book is about those moments when we ‘know’ something without knowing why. It shows that honing your instincts could change the way you think about thinking forever.
