bookshelves: science-ish
Recommended for: the indecisive
Read in June, 2007

This smallish sized book certainly packs a punch. I was thrilled to be able to finish it in a couple of days, but the ideas presented by Gladwell will definitely linger. Much more than just a book about a theory vindicating gut instinct, Gladwell illustrates some sobering instances of something called 'priming' and it's staggering effect on how we behave in terms of race.
Although aside from that compelling chapter, I felt at times I could have "thin sliced" the rest of the book and come away with a satisfactory summary.
