I first became a massive Malcolm Gladwell fan after reading his acclaimed ‘Outliers’ followed by ‘David and Goliath’. His books are always insightful, well-researched and eye-opening, expanding upon important ideas for growing in excellence and expertise, particularly when it introduces you to ideas such as the 10,000 hour rule, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s miraculous flow state and, in ‘Blink’, the power of the unconscious mind in decision-making.
How to read this summary
I am going to take you through each chapter individually. I will provide you with a short page (give or take) summary on each chapter so you can gain as much insight – from my personal perspectives – as possible without having to read all 250+ pages. Of course, I would suggest you read the book when you can make the time, but for those with limited time to do so or for those wanting to get a taster of the key nuggets (those that resonated with me, anyway), read on.
In each chapter summary, I provide a very minuscule insight into some of the stories shared and the key principle(s) I believe was being taught within that chapter of Blink, supported by short quotes or extracts from the text where appropriate. There are many more stories within Blink: The Power of Thinking without Thinking and many more principles you may indeed find. Hopefully this will provide you with a brief, but impactful overview to help you understand and effectively (and positively) harness the power of your unconscious mind.
