I used to work as an engineer at a big corporation, a company that was known for hiring really smart people (they've since abandon that model). As such, I spent a lot of time with lots of really smart people and was involved in many many lunch time conversations about books. Pop-non-fiction, such as Malcolm Gladwell's works were frequently passed around and discussed. In fact, I heard so much about Blink before reading it, that I didn't really need to read it. I've heard it all before.

There really isn't too much to it. No life-changing revelation. No real point even. Some interesting stories and discussion of psychology studies. Engaging, but most likely your friend who recomended the book already told you the most interesting parts.

Jackie Very skimmable. I wonder if that was intentional.
