BOOK EXCERPT:

From the #1 bestselling author of The Bomber Mafia, the landmark book that has revolutionized the way we understand leadership and decision making. In his breakthrough 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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Two street kids get tangled in a plot over their heads - and risk an unexpected connection - in this heart-pounding thriller by Tim Wynne-Jones. (Age 14 and up) 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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A Stunning action-packed adventure. BLINK is a thrilling, unexpected and addictive fantasy perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Neal Shusterman. Blink is a creatively written teen and young adult sci fi fantasy novel series by Michael Riggs with a rich complex fantasy universe of magic, teleportation, time travel, alien planets, clean romance, strong friendships, thought provoking concepts, action and adventure, alien creatures, mystery, twists, turns and more! With an ever expanding underground fandom - Blink is rapidly becoming one of the most popular self published teen fantasy and sci-fi book series. An inescapable destiny… Brody Calix is chased by a blue eyed wolf in the woods just before meeting a mysterious girl named Sky at a party. When he finds a crystal necklace where they first met, he is introduced to a power he never could have imagined existed before and an entire universe of adventure and mystery awaiting him. A threat to humanity… A tribe of unlikely companions fight for survival in a deep forest on an alien world with no idea how to get home. When Brody and Sky arrive, the tribe finds that something dark has been lured to them — a human hunting shadow entity who knows them by name. Survival on another world… As Brody finds himself falling for Sky he knows one thing for sure — he must find a way to get them back home safely. The longer it takes, the more impossible it seems. The more he learns about Sky, the more he realizes she might be the one protecting him. REVIEWS: “I really enjoyed this first book in the series. This is a highly creative and unique story that grabs you from the very beginning. I felt like I was part of the story and watching it all unfold in front of my eyes. The main character, Brody was done exceptionally well. I found myself rooting for him throughout the chapters. Sky was another cool character. Another thing I enjoyed was the great descriptions of the environment, strange animals, and beings. It was just enough to create a picture in my mind, without being overly descriptive. This is an easy to read, fast paced and highly entertaining read. Fans of science-fiction, fantasy, and thrillers will enjoy this great novel. Now that I'm hooked and invested in the characters, I'm going to start reading the sequel to find out what happens next.” “If you’re in the market for a fast-paced thrill of a read with twists and turns aplenty, then you really need look no further than BLINK, the first instalment in the YA fantasy/sci-fi Blink Series. Exciting, dramatic and gripping right from the first page to the last, Michael Riggs has presented us with the perfect opportunity to get completely lost and absorbed in this fantastic novel, at least for a few hours! Books have always been the most perfect form of escapism to me, and if you too are looking for something to take your mind of the current state of the world then BLINK really does deserve a place at the top of your TBR list. It’s not often that you come across a fantasy/sci-fi novel that, while using many of the traditional themes and tropes that we all know and love, manages to feel completely fresh and unique, even to this devotee of the genre. I won’t give too much away here in terms of the plot, as due to the relatively short length this is easily a book you could devour in a single sitting. In fact, I’m sure that must be the only way to read it, as once you begin, I don’t think you’ll be able to stop!”
