In his landmark bestseller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. 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?In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police. Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"-filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.

As a young man in Glasgow’s underworld, Ian ‘Blink’ MacDonald fought, robbed and slashed his way to the top, developing a taste for the high life along the way. His notoriety earned him an offer of work from Scotland’s most feared gangster, Arthur Thompson, but MacDonald had other plans: to finance a new life in Spain with the multimillion-pound proceeds of a high-risk armed bank robbery. But the job went badly wrong, and MacDonald was jailed for 16 years. In prison, he met scores of high-profile inmates, including torture-gang boss Eddie Richardson, high-society serial killer Archie Hall, notorious lifer Charles Bronson and Ronnie O’Sullivan senior, father of the snooker star. On his release, MacDonald became a magnet for trouble, enjoying a hedonistic, drug-fuelled lifestyle and finding himself drawn into conflict with police, gangsters and businessmen. Rearrested several times, he was the target of more than one terrifying murder attempt. In Blink, MacDonald provides an eye-opening account of his highly eventful journey through life in Glasgow’s brutal gangland.

Jeder kennt sie: Momente, in denen wir denken, ohne zu denken.Wir nennen sie Intuition oder Bauchgefühl. Aber sie sind viel mehr: Unser Gehirn arbeitet dann auf Hochtouren, um uns die richtigen Entscheidungen zu liefern. Malcolm Gladwell erklärt die Macht dieses Augenblicks und zeigt, wie wir unsere verborgene Intelligenz trainieren und besser nutzen können.

Oliver Jeges lieferte 2012 in der WELT mit seinem Essay Generation Maybe das neue Schlagwort einer Generation. Sein Artikel, der sich auf die inzwischen verbotene Werbekampagne von Marlboro "Don't be a Maybe" bezieht, wurde auf Facebook fast 100.000 Mal geteilt. In den Medien kursiert seitdem die Diskussion um das Erwachsenwerden in unserer Multioptionsgesellschaft. Jeges traf den Nerv der Zeit. Doch was zeichnet die Generation Maybe aus? Sie strebt nach Glück, Sicherheit und Freiheit. Sie will atomfreien Strom, glückliche Hühner und fairen Kaffee. Ihr Lebensziel ist ein CO2-freier Fußabdruck und die große Selbstverwirklichung. Alles ist ja heute möglich. Das klappt schon, irgendwie. Oder?Doch was nach außen wie ein Segen scheint, ist für diese Generation ein Fluch. Sie ist in Wohlstand gebettet und hat dennoch rasende Existenzängste. Eine Generation hat ihren Kompass verloren und ringt um Orientierung. Weil plötzlich alles möglich ist, sind alle heillos überfordert. Oliver Jeges fühlt in seiner sehr unterhaltsamem und ehrlichen Reportage den 20- bis 35-Jährigen auf den Zahn, mischt sich unter das Partyvolk, Praktikanten, Professoren und Piraten und befragt schonungslos sich selbst, wie er nur zu einem Maybe werden konnte.

Blink showcases the work of 100 contemporary photographers, selected by 10 critics, curators and creative directors based around the world. Essentially an exhibition in a book, it provides an overview of the world of photography, presents the most exciting photographers of today and predicts the stars of tomorrow. All styles of photography are represented -- from fashion to art, from photojournalism to digital photography. An authoritative reference and source of inspiration for professionals and newcomers alike, Blink enables the reader to stay one step ahead of emerging trends in the fast-changing world of photography. Blink presents the work of 100 of the world's most exciting contemporary photographers, selected by 10 international critics, curators and creative directors. An exhibition in a book, Blink showcases up-and-coming talent from all corners of the globe, enabling the reader to stay one step ahead of emerging trends in the fast-changing world of photography. It acts as a unique reference tool for photographers, artists, designers and all those interested in contemporary culture and the image. Blink also provides a rare insight into the deliberations of an esteemed, international panel of selectors -- the 'experts' making key decisions about the future of photography. Each curator was commissioned to choose ten photographers who have broken new ground on the international photography scene in the last four years. Blink includes some acclaimed figures, such as Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Vik Muniz and Rineke Dijkstra, who the selectors believe are set to become household names over the next few years. Other photographers, such as Tomoko Isoda, Rut Blees Luxemburg and MarcAsnin, are gaining recognition for their innovative work and are about to emerge internationally. The photographers' pages are listed in A-Z order, featuring two double-page spreads of recent, exemplary images, a short explanatory text from the curator, and biographical information. In a series of ten essays written especially for this publication, the curators describe their decision-making process and reflect on the nature of contemporary photographic practice. In addition to the photographers, each curator has chosen an extract written since 1995 which they feel best illustrates the cultural context surrounding contemporary photography. The ten works reproduced in the book range from cultural studies to fiction, from criticism to journalism. Blink takes its place in a series of surveys identifying 100 of the most interesting, cutting-edge practitioners of key art forms. Earlier surveys include cream and Fresh Cream: Contemporary Art in Culture and 10x10: 10 critics, 100 architects. Blink is an exciting event in the world of photography, and, like its precursors, is set to become a much sought-after collector's item.

In the Blink of an Eye is editor Walter Murch's essay of film editing. Starting with what might seem to be the most basic editing question - Why do cuts work? - he treats the reader to a marvelous "ride" through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. Along the way, he offers his insights on such subjects as continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming, and real life; the criteria of a good cut; and the blink of the eye as both an analog to and an emotional cue for the cut. New to this second edition is Murch's lengthy meditation on the current state of digital editing.

Boy, did Blink get off on the wrong floor. All he wanted was to steal some breakfast for his empty belly, but instead he stumbled upon a fake kidnapping and a cell phone dropped by an "abducted" CEO, giving Blink a link to his perfect blonde daughter. Now Blink is on the run, but it’s OK as long as he’s smart enough to stay in the game and keep Captain Panic locked in his hold. Enter a girl named Caution. As in "Caution: Toxic." As in "Caution: Watch Your Step." She’s also on the run, from a skeezy drug-dealer boyfriend and from a nightmare in her past that won’t let her go. When she spies Blink at the train station, Caution can see he’s an easy mark. But there’s something about this naïve, skinny street punk, whom she only wanted to rob, that tugs at her heart, a heart she thought deserved not to feel. Charged with suspense and intrigue, this taut novel trails two deeply compelling characters as they forge a blackmail scheme that is foolhardy at best, disastrous at worst - along with a fated, tender partnership that will offer them each a rare chance for redemption.
