Description of Blink : The Power of Thinking without Thinking (Paperback) by Malcolm Gladwell

Blink: The Power Of Thinking Without Thinking is a book on intuition and how to instinctively make the right decisions, by Malcolm Gladwell.

Summary Of The Book

In Blink: The Power Of Thinking Without Thinking, Malcolm Gladwell explores the depths of human intuition and how anyone can develop the ability to make quick, yet accurate decisions. These decisions are termed as snap judgements in the book, and the author makes a case for how snap judgements can be more efficient than reasoned decisions, which require deliberation.

The author terms the instinctive side of our mind as the adaptive unconscious. This is the part of the brain that we use for rapid cognition, and for quickly picking out the finer details that matter from among a host of variables.

Blink: The Power Of Thinking Without Thinking isn’t just about the analysis of this phenomenon. Malcolm Gladwell reveals the secret behind using the power of snap judgements in everyday life. He also attempts to detail the different kinds of situations where these decisions are a bad idea, such as the shooting of Amadou Diallo in 1999.

Another phenomenon that the author talks about is called thin slicing. This is the ability to cut out a slice of relevant information from amidst the chaos of information, which presents itself in the first instant that a decision needs to be made. Through studies, he highlights the truth behind whether experts make their best decisions based on instinct or if information analysis still trumps the former.

Conclusions in this book are put forward through a diverse set of examples. The power of intuition is attributed to specific events, like when artists can tell if a historic artifact is fake within an instant, or how a commander used World War II technology to out-maneuver the collective strength of the US armed forces.

About Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell is a journalist, speaker and bestselling author whose work explores academic findings on psychology, sociology and social psychology.

His other books include The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference, What The Dog Saw: And Other Adventures and David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants.

Malcolm Gladwell’s writing process revolves around the analysis, interpretation and representation of valuable research. He has earned a place in the minds of his readers as a credible source by shunning personal opinion, and instead relying on research findings to tell the story. As his work tends to rely on scientific research, one of his greatest strengths is his ability to talk about scientific data in a way that anyone can understand.

Malcolm Gladwell was born in Hampshire, England and from the age of 6 he has spent most of his life in Ontario, Canada, where his family relocated. He was recognized for the second-highest form of honour for merit in his country, by being appointed to the Order of Canada.

Buy The Art of Thinking Clearly: Better Thinking, Better Decisions: Book
Description of The Art of Thinking Clearly: Better Thinking, Better Decisions (Hardcover) by Rolf Dobelli

The Art Of Thinking Clearly, written by Rolf Dobelli, lists the major flaws in the thinking process of humans.

Summary Of The Book

Human beings are supposed to be rational creatures, capable of highly analytical thinking. Decision making involves seeing all the aspects of the matter clearly and arriving at the optimal solution. However, this doesn't always happen.

Most people regret a lot of decisions they have taken, whether it is about their career or about backing the wrong horse. The Art Of Thinking Clearly says the reason for this is that human thought is influenced by so many factors.

The mental process of each person is swayed by many beliefs, fallacies, and illusions. Why do people continue indulging in bad habits even when they know it is not good for them? What factor convinces the mind that 98% fat free is better than 1% fat?

People let many external influences cloud their thinking. Long held beliefs, the voice of authority figures, oft-repeated statements, personal biases, all these and more contribute to the confusion. This book examines many such influences that cloud human thinking. It is divided into 99 short chapters, each chapter discussing a distinct fallacy, illusion, bias or anomaly.

Recognizing these errors is the first step towards thinking clearly and making better decisions. This book shows many of the common tendencies and beliefs that cloud judgement. Why do people think ownership increases the value of an object, and why do people tend to take credit for their success, but blame failure on other factors?

The content of The Art Of Thinking Clearly originally appeared as newspaper columns, and the book is a compilation of those features. The short and concise chapters clearly discuss 99 flaws in thinking that prevent people from seeing things clearly and subvert their perceptions.

The book helps the readers spot and clear the dust and cobwebs that clutter the mind and thus leaves it fresh and free to get clear perspectives on situations, and allows it to arrive at better decisions.

Buy Narendra Modi - The Gamechanger: Book
Description of Narendra Modi - The Gamechanger (Paperback) by Sudesh Verma
For the first time, Modi has been quoted in any book talking about the hitherto untouched aspects of his life. The book is based on extensive interviews of the Gujarat Chief Minister and his close relatives about the influences that shaped his thoughts and actions. The 400-plus pages talk about the inspiring stories that made Modi what he is todayhow he evolved as a man of development and empowered people with his decisions, and how he faced the poison-laced barbs of his critics who were ready to tear him to pieces for a crime he never committed.Modi's journey from a tea-seller to becoming the prime ministerial candidate of the opposition National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has been one of struggle, dedication, determination, hardwork and perseverance.

Since his childhood, Modi has been an early riser. He does not go to bed until he has finished his work. An average Indian finds his own reflection in the struggle of Modi. Like Modi, he can dream big. Yes, he can! When he was a young boy of 13, he received a near-fatal injury due to attack by a crocodile in the Sharmishtha Lake he swam daily. He was bed-ridden for more than a week. It hit like a sword on my ankle, he said and showed to the author the scar he got due to the nine stitches. Modi was a victim of child marriage, a usual practice in the backward Ghanchi caste, but his desire to serve larger causes persuaded him to skip the final stage of the three-stage marriage. When he left home to become a wanderer in search of truth, he took formal leave of everyone, including his mother.The Modi family had ancestral links with Rajasthan.

How Modis became a backward oil pressing community in Gujarat is baffling? Some say that the original backward Modis migrated from Bihar, where there are still people with the Modi surname in oil pressing trade. The veracity of the claim, however, could not be established.Coming from a poor family, he tried to design solutions to poverty after he became the chief minister. He empowered farmers by making agriculture lucrative. He made industries attractive by linking them with profitability, employment and development. This book reflects the changing opinion of his critics after his recent exoneration by an Ahmedabad court. But despite the court verdict, he continues to be vilified for the 2002 riots. This book is an attempt to bust the cultivated myths being spread against him. Muslims and Modi are drawing close to each other. The community voted overwhelmingly for the BJP in the 2012 assembly elections and the municipal elections. Even some of his bitterest critics, such as Zafar Sareshwala and Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi, have turned his admirers.

The book presents Narendra Modi as a GameChanger who knows how to impress people with his work and turn the tables on his adversaries. It remains to be seen whether or not the BJP will succeed in converting the massive support for him into votes for the party.

Fountainhead; The (Paperback) by Ayn Rand

Buy Fountainhead; The: Book
Description of Fountainhead; The (Paperback) by Ayn Rand

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand is a gripping narrative that upholds the downfall of collectivism at the altar of the fiery human spirit and individualism.

Summary Of The Book

The Fountainhead revolves around the dynamic protagonist Howard Roark, who defies collectivism with his own brand of philosophy and architecture. He takes a firm stand against worshipping tradition and embraces his own modern art forms. Roark gets expelled from architecture school owing to his non-adherence to conventional guidelines. Roark starkly defies history in favor of a more utilitarian outlook. He highlights materials, location and purpose as the three pillars of architecture.

Roark ultimately works for disgraced architectural legend Henry Cameron in New York. At the same time, The Fountainhead also tells the story of Peter Keating, a perfect foil to Roark. Keating holds a job at the renowned Francon & Heyer firm, where he eventually lands a partnership on account of his flattery. Roark starts his own office, but finally lands up at a granite quarry owned by Guy Francon. The novel is also the story of Dominique Francon with whom Roark has a physical and emotional battle throughout the novel.

The Fountainhead is an intriguing look at hypocrisy through Roark’s anonymous designs that spur Keating’s success. Eventually Gail Wynand becomes Roark’s friend and patron. Roark even goes to trial for dynamiting a building, the designs of which were changed.
The manuscript of The Fountainhead was shunned by twelve publishing houses and when finally published, went on to sell in excess of six and a half million copies globally. It was also the subject of a 1949 film, the screenplay of which was written by Rand.

About Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand was an American screenwriter, playwright, philosopher, political activist and best selling novelist. She received worldwide acclaim for Objectivism, her own philosophical system and her firebrand ideologies. Ayn Rand also wrote Anthem, We the Living, For The New Intellectual and Atlas Shrugged.

Born into a Russian business family, Rand majored in history at the Petrograd State University. She also spent a year at State Technicum for Screen Arts. She got her first screenwriting assignment for the American film The King of Kings. She also tasted success with her successful Broadway play Night of January 16th. She lectured extensively at Harvard, MIT, Yale, Columbia, Princeton and other universities and also at the Ford Hall Forum. The Nathaniel Branden Institute was set up in 1958 to promote her unique brand of philosophy.

She married Frank O’Connor in 1929. Rand believed that knowledge could only be attained with reason and not religion. Egoism was necessary both ethically and rationally and altruism was entirely unnecessary according to her. Rand condemned collectivism, anarchism, statism and traditional philosophical traditions. She backed laissez-faire capitalism for protection of individual human rights.

Description of The Big Connect : Politics in the Age of Social Media (Paperback) by Shaili Chopra
Are digital means of communication better than traditional bhaashans and processions? Will a social media revolution coerce armchair opinion makers to head to poll booths?
Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are changing the way the denizens of the world and more specifically youth of this country, communicate and connect. In The Big Connect, Shaili Chopra traces the advent of social media in India and how politics and lobbying has now shifted to the virtual floor. She argues that though a post, a pin, or a tweet may not translate into a vote, it can definitely influence it. With comparisons to the Obama campaign of 2008 and 2012 and analysis of the social media campaigns of political bigwigs like Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal - the book discusses the role of a digital community in Indian politics.
