Coup de Coeur
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell is a non-fiction book. It is about your first instinct, your gut reaction, snap judgments, how you should trust these things. This isn’t a book that you have to read page by page, but rather one where you read little sections at the time, in the order you want. It is extremely interesting. Gladwell describes many experiments that have been made on instinct, including one where a sociologist can determine whether a couple will last or not based on seven minutes with them. It is a great change from constantly reading fiction books and will definitely open your eyes of new ways of thinking.
