FonoLibro se enorgullece en presentar el best-seller del New York Times Blink: El Poder de Pensar, Sin Pensar de Malcolm Gladwell.

En su aclamado bestseller, El Punto Clave, Malcolm Gladwell redefine como entendemos el mundo alrededor de nosotros. Ahora en Blink, Malcolm revoluciona la manera como entendemos al mundo desde adentro. Este es un audiolibro acerca como pensamos, sin pensar; acerca de decisiones que aparentemente se toman en un instante, en el parpadeo de un ojo, no son tan simples como parecen. Como algunas personas son excelentes tomadores de decisiones, y como otras son ineptas? Como algunas personas siguen sus instintos y triunfan, y como otras terminan por equivocarse? Como nuestros cerebros realmente funcionan, en la oficina, en la clase, en la cocina, y en el dormitorio? Porque las mejores decisiones son aquellas que son imposible explicar a otros?

En Blink conoceremos a un psicólogo que ha aprendido a predecir si un matrimonio puede durar con sólo observarles unos minutos; a un entrenador de tenis que sabe cuándo un jugador hará doble falta antes incluso de que la raqueta toque la bola; a un experto en antigüedades que reconoce una falsificación de un solo vistazo.

Listener Opinions

    " Fascinating stuff! I have a few chapters left to go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Henrik | 2/5/2014

    " Not very well written but still had some interesting points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecilia Johnson | 1/21/2014

    " Gladwell is a great storyteller, but even so, this book could have served its purpose with fewer words. I agree with other reviewers in that Gladwell contradicts himself at times (thinking without thinking is great; thinking without thinking is dangerous), but the book does make a contribution to the field. I wouldn't re-read this, but I'm glad I did the first time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LS | 1/14/2014

    " Interesting listen. I thought he was going to offer tips on how to make use of rapid cognition; there wasn't any of that. Either way, the stories were interesting though, so that made up for it. It is very interesting for non-fiction, that's for sure. Worth the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kush Sikand | 1/13/2014

    " Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell, is a book about thin slicing, which is our unconscious being able to find patterns and behavior based on narrow slices of experience. The introduction got me hooked right away: Gladwell wrote about Greek statues that sold for 10 million to the Getty Museum. After much analysis, it was determined that these Greek statues were indeed real, and the statue was bought by the museum. However, when people started to look at the statue in the museum, they thought that something was missing, and Fredrico Zero, an Italian art historian was the first to determine that the statues were fake just by looking at them. Indeed, these statues would later be classified as fake; the analysis that had been done in the beginning was completely wrong. There were similar stories throughout the book: for example, there was a tennis coach who knew someone was going to double fault before the ball was even hit. This book was the first that I had read in the subject of first impressions, and I found it pretty entertaining. However, there were portions of the book that got repetitious and boring. In the end, though, I enjoyed the book and would recommend the book to anyone that was interested in reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 1/7/2014

    " This was a pretty neat book. I may read it again in the near future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saikiran | 12/28/2013

    " This is really really amazing. Instinct reactions is an art and this book has many definitions of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cavon | 12/12/2013

    " Another good read. Mr. Gladwell does a solid job of showcasing both the good and bad of snap judgements. I especially enjoyed his chapters on thin-slicing marriages and racial profiling. I also thoroughly enjoyed his chapter about Paul Riper. Overall, I feel this a great book. Quite thought provoking indeed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Zhang | 12/1/2013

    " Might have been more impressed if I haven't learned about a large part of the book in Psychology class. Interesting case studies. Not that helpful in terms of guidance, but good to know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anton | 11/19/2013

    " Another Gladwell classic, this time on something we all need to do more: think less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 11/6/2013

    " This book is more or less an investigation on the premise of trusting your first impression. It goes into situations where you can trust your first impression and when it should be doubted. It was pretty interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irin | 11/4/2013

    " A great way to explore extraordinary people stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandee | 11/4/2013

    " I'll probably have to read this again, so I can soak up all of the fascinating information! This book left me with many ideas to ponder! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NYLon Carry On | 11/2/2013

    " I love all of his books. Very interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcus | 9/22/2013

    " I fell out of love with this book several times while reading. I did not relate to the anecdotes, rather the stories left me to gleam the theme to determine the lesson on observation and decision making. Maybe I need to read it again. It did not compel me to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 8/3/2013

    " I liked the book. I found some of the experiments really fascinating but I wish the author would have done a better job tying all the ends together for the ending. Some of the observations seemed a little disjointed and I wasn't sure how it all should come together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mazen Loujami | 6/13/2013

    " Interesting book on some psychological aspects of our dayly life, but a little bit superficial. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kishore | 5/15/2013

    " Absolutely superb. An eye opener in many ways I couldn't have imagined. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 3/23/2013

    " Some interesting stories and anecdotes; as with other books of his, rather repetitive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 2/19/2013

    " for the 'book club' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 2/6/2013

    " Good but not Gladwell's best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin Marie | 11/8/2012

    " Spurs introspective growth- makes an individual really think about each choice made...loved it!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie Clegg | 9/10/2012

    " Not quite as memorable as the others, but, naturally, it was eloquently written and captivating--that I do remember. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Reid | 1/31/2012

    " I think I've read the three books he's known for randomly. This, as the others, worked for me, as it makes me see things a bit differently. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Lowery | 1/25/2012

    " This was an excellent book that changes the way you think about thinking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Cotton | 9/2/2011

    " Once again, Gladwell hits on a nerve. The bottom line, 'trust your gut.' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mshodes | 5/22/2011

    " This was the first Malcolm Gladwell book I read and I was hooked from the first few pages in an airport gift shop. I love learning about how our instincts work and the way society influences our gut reactions, sometimes for the worse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyubov | 5/20/2011

    " This book changed my life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 5/19/2011

    " This was a fascinating book discussing factors that contribute to our first impressions and how we can train ourselves to make more accurate impressions. I enjoyed it and it was fun to think about and discuss. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elize | 5/18/2011

    " loved the real world examples given and insight into the mind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 5/18/2011

    " Not sure if it was just over my head or if it was some gobbldy-gook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 5/18/2011

    " the thing about malcolm gladwell is he always thinks he's right. no room for any other interpretation. also, this book felt a little...wandering. i felt like he started out trying to make a point, but halfway through he stopped trying. but interesting stuff, and accessible as always. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Madina | 5/18/2011

    " I felt like Malcolm Gladwell was dragging out this book to make it a book. He took one idea, a very good one, about gut instinct, and built a whole book around it. Chapter after chapter, I kept thinking "But I just read this in the previous chapter!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yuval | 5/17/2011

    " The idea is thoughtful and the stories are interesting. However, it is quite repetitive, and can be shortened a whole lot without losing the information conveyed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacir100 | 5/16/2011

    " I loved reading this book. Years later I am still thinking about the research and details in this book. Gladwell is a great author and every time he comes out with a new book its guaranteed its going to be on my bookshelves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justice | 5/16/2011

    " A compelling read which teaches that a snap judgement can be far more effective than cautious decision-making. "
