*blink*


This is the book I've just started reading.

It's by the same author of "The Tipping Point".

The premise: There are things that we know in a blink of an eye. Things that we know before we know that we know them. I'm just getting into it, but I think this will finally explain what all that love-at-first-sight thing is all about.

If human perception/conciousness bores you, give it a pass. But if you're even slightly perked by the premise, you will definitely love this book.

far from believing the myth of love from first sight, i want you to tell me, after you finish the book, if he talks about bad intuition also, the one that comes from prejudice.i do hope he praises snap decisions that are done without much thinking since that's what my life has been about...

Everybody I know and their grandmother is reading this book! I'd better jump on the bandwagon. :)

It does talk about "bad" or wrong intuition. And it also claims it will show how we can 'train' our intuition to be more accurate.
As for praising snap decisions, an example that does that is on the first page!
How about you read it too?

Grandmothers are wise, read psychology books, and are excellent knitters and cooks. Trust them. Buy the book...

I read the first few pages on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0316172324/ref=pd_sxp_f/002-0293636-0851233) and I was hooked! Where did you buy it from?

I picked it up at a small bookstore in Harmra (Way In). But I suppose Virgin Megastore should have it as well.

I don't want to sound materialistic and all, but I've just sold 2 copies. Where's my cut?!

Sounds interesting! What does this guy do for a living? Maybe I should not ask that in just look for it myself. Hm, Maybe I want to buy this book but once I enter a book store I always end up buying not one but a couple of books and I can never find the time to read all of them...
