I'm a huge fan of Gladwell's books and his insightful and often twisted view of the world. His books constantly challenge my thinking and leave me feeling profoundly changed and eager to do a deeper dive into what I think and why.

Of his books, I think I enjoyed Outliers the most, but Blink was right up there. The central premise talks about unconscious decision making and snap judgments, when to rely on them and when not to. Interesting premise, and as usual he uses several fantastic examples to make his point. (his use of the female orchstra audition was a favorite of mine...)

I would recommend all of Gladwell's books highly. I'd start with Outliers, but found both Blink and Tipping Point to be equally challenging and insightful.
