Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

I find it very difficult to review some non-fiction books as they are sort of self-explanatory. This book's sub-title is The Power of Thinking Without Thinking. That is exactly what the book is about. There are a number of very interesting examples included in the book. The part of the book which was most interesting to me was that the police if trained enough can override their instincts so that they do not kill in error. Obviously with the number of incidents sensationized in the press this needs to be implemented in more police forces. Gladwell has the ability to write to the general public's level
