Gladwell to find them

Over the christmas break, a friend slipped me a copy of Malcolm Gladwell's Blink. I consumed that in my festival of literature this year, which lead me to listen to Outliers from Audible. And finally, Tipping Point via the library. Completely out of sequence, but none of the effect was lost.

Firstly, I would like to point out that these other methods of consuming books, audio or hiring from the library may share the risk of getting a bad book, but the good books will still need to be purchased. I have saved nothing here.

Anyway, if you are looking at a way to re-evaluate the way you think about thinking, well Gladwell is as good a place as any. Some other good books that have kept me interested this year, of a similar ilk are:
  • The opposable mind - Roger Martin
  • Did you spot the gorilla? - Richard Wiseman
  • Quirkology - Richard Wiseman
  • Tribes - Seth Godin
Finally, my obsession with mind mapping has lead to the included representation of Tipping Point
