I found this book to be both extremely interesting from a business/life perspective while also replete with entertaining stories. I know many people who consider themselves "snap judgement" type people in many contexts of their lives. Despite our tendency to dismiss our immediate reactions in favor of further study, Gladwell presents a convincing argument that our first impressions are often correct; particularly in professional or personal arenas where one may have abundant knowledge on a certain subject.

Even if you don't agree with the premise or wonder how a book about judgement could be interesting, the examples offered are really, really good stories. Definitely a book that you will want to talk about with other people.
