really liked it

A lot of fascinating ideas and questions raised in this book. It is mind-broadening and entertaining.

My only gripe is that he seems to leave the reader alone to figure out what to do with all the new ideas and how to apply them to life. I kept waiting for Gladwell to tie things together and draw conclusions, but he did very little of this. I guess I need to sit down and figure out (based on all his information) what the "rules" are for how to improve rapid cognition, how to keep it unbiased, and when to trust it and when not, but I would have appreciated a little more guidance from the author on this.
