One of the best things with travelling is that I have time to read books. Just finished Malcolm Gladwell’s “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking”, a great book exploring what Gladwell calls “thin-slicing”, instinctive gut-feeling based decisions. The book is more descriptive rather than conclusive, but full of interesting cases on how the most important decisions we make are often made in a split-second, in a blink by thin’slicing. There are the examples from War Games, an emergency room, marriage, speed-dating to criminal investigations. The list is long. Since I have a background in Psychology and in martial arts, I just love these type of stories. The book is very engaging and also written in a way that makes the reading flow. Warmly recommended to anybody interested in what makes us all tick’.
