Alex | 8 comments I found many books of MALCOLM GLADWELL in italian language. What do you think about "The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference"?!
Well I don't have read many books.. I'm interested in psychology, sociology and filosophy,(in general I prefer books who help to think) but I don't know where start..

Peg Tittle (ptittle) | 12 comments Hm. Read what Pinker has to say about Gladwell. (I think it was Pinker. Something about all anecdote, mistaking correlation for causation through and through, no hard evidence, just faddy, ... )

Nina (luminolpdx) | 7 comments I've read all of Gladwell. Blink is about thin-slicing, v. near Ekmans lie detection work in theory. Gladwell strikes me as a well, poor writer, but beyond that I think Goleman has more to say on similar topics. Pinker makes me swoon, How the Mind Works is a must-read.

Jacob De | 2 comments I'm currently reading "Thinking, fast and slow" by Daniel Kahneman. If you're interested in all kinds of flaws which exist in human cognition, I would really recommend it!
