But Revere "wasn't just the man with the biggest Rolodex in colonial Boston," he was also a "Maven" who gathered extensive information about the British. He knew what was going on and he knew exactly whom to tell. The phenomenon continues to this day--think of how often you've received information in an e-mail message that had been forwarded at least half a dozen times before reaching you.
Gladwell develops these and other concepts such as the "stickiness" of ideas or the effect of population size on information dispersal through simple, clear explanations and entertainingly illustrative anecdotes, such as comparing the pedagogical methods of Sesame Street and Blue's Clues, or explaining why it would be even easier to play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon with the actor Rod Steiger.
Although some readers may find the transitional passages between chapters hold their hands a little too tightly, and Gladwell's closing invocation of the possibilities of social engineering sketchy, even chilling, The Tipping Point is one of the most effective books on science for a general audience in ages. It seems inevitable that "tipping point," like "future shock" or "chaos theory," will soon become one of those ideas that everybody knows--or at least knows by name.
Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error?
How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others? You can change your ad preferences anytime.

Are you sure you want to Yes No. Be the first to like this. Give me thirty seconds to absorb, would ya? She had cornered her daughter in the kitchen as soon as Cam had come back from the ferret building, because she wanted to get the confrontation over with, so she took advantage of their location and got up to root around in the fridge for something to snack on.
She grabbed some of the cookies she'd made the day before, and pulled out the jug of goat's milk to go with them.
Have some cookies. Maybe that'll help you absorb better," she told her daughter, and slid the container toward her. Cameron automatically grabbed one of the cheesecake cookies Mac had figured out how to make from the goat cheese that was so plentiful on their farm now. She'd taken a lot more satisfaction from homesteading-type activities than she had expected, and busied herself coming up with new things, but she knew she'd go back to take-out in a heartbeat if it were at all possible.
We were dead broke back then. You wouldn't remember it, but it was not a happy time for me. I had just turned eighteen, and summer was starting to kick in something fierce. Air conditioning was a luxury we couldn't afford in my wildest dreams in those days, and I remember sitting at that table, wanting to cry because there was no way I could even afford to download some cheap ice cream at the grocery store.
From there things got a whole lot better for us. It meant putting you in daycare, but at least my boss was understanding the few times I got called out of work for emergency situations with you.
My work could be done on a fairly flexible schedule, since I didn't need to be there answering phones or anything, but a lot of employers aren't that nice. I wasn't very good at taking orders from people anyway, and I decided that was enough for me. I was sick of working for idiots who knew less than I did about their own jobs, and then having to take crap from them. It was a really good thing I left, though. The money was a hell of a lot better for consulting work. I only did that part-time, of course, but even that was more than enough to live on.
I just needed variety," Mac said. Cameron nodded her head in response.
How long did it take you to get bored with accounting? And then later on it was investment stuff. Of course, most people would have been bored with those types of jobs right from the start, but you were really into them at first. That's why I've always got my head stuck in a book, learning something new. Between my curiosity and my need to keep my brain engaged, there aren't a lot of subjects I haven't learned at least something about.
And I took classes, too. A lot. I certainly wouldn't have survived when the shit hit the fan. I was raised on a farm, and, believe me, I hated it. I despised having to weed the garden, especially, and we had a big one. Then there were the animals.
I'd no sooner make friends with one of them than we were eating them for dinner. That's just mean. I'm so glad I never met your parents," Cam stated emphatically.
Flopsy and Mopsy aside, there was a lot of other cruelty and sickness in that house. I might have gotten pregnant young, and with the naiumlve hope that my even-less-mature husband would rescue me from that life, but I wasn't completely without a sense of self-preservation," Mac explained.
People just don't get it when you say you don't speak to your family. It's like they think all families have to love each other. I've lost track of the number of times I've had people say, 'How can you not talk to your own mother?
She's your mother!
Actually, my mother wasn't all that bad, but my father was a nightmare. But so long as my mother stuck with him, and willingly sacrificed her kids' welfare just to stay with him, there was no way I could have a relationship with her. She obviously didn't care that much about her children.
