Summary:

The landmark book that has revolutionized the way we understand leadership and decision making -- from #1 bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell. 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.

Summary:

“Blink,” examines the life of a cop from his early adolescent years through his career in Law Enforcement. The action is non-stop for the main character, Sam. Experiencing the pain of death and suffering surrounding him as a teenager causes him to mature at an early age in order to face his own struggle for survival. This is a story of the trauma, the pleasures, and the experiences which shape the emotional and mental essences of a man. It will take the reader across the tracks to the dark side of the world where crime is a way of life as you follow Sam from one case to another. The story spans thirty years in time. It will present the reader with a deeper understanding of Law Enforcement and the cops working their own neighborhood. Cops are people too, just like anyone else. Some are good and some are bad. Some are energetic and some are lazy. Some are honest, and some are not. They make mistakes and rarely have all the answers. Each situation they become involved in is unique and requires a judgement call. There never is a right answer but usually one that works for the time. Each event centers around action and reaction, sometimes resulting in fatal solutions. This story is designed to be entertaining as well as informative. It will leave the reader with a new perspective the next time he sees a police car racing down his streets with the lights and siren blazing.

Summary:

Life can change in the blink of an eye. That's a truth Andy Slater learns as a young man in 1982, taking the Chicago 'L' to work every morning. Andy's life is laid out before him: a good job, marriage to his female college sweetheart, and the white picket fence existence he believes in. But when he sees Carlos Castillo for the first time, Carlos's dark eyes and Latin appeal mesmerize him. Fate continues to throw them together until the two finally agree to meet up. At Andy's apartment, the pent-up passion of both young men is ignited, but is snuffed out by an inopportune and poorly-timed phone call. Flash forward to present day. Andy is alone, having married, divorced, and become the father of a gay son. He's comfortable but alone and has never forgotten the powerful pull of Carlos's gaze on the 'L' train. He vows to find him once more, hoping for a second chance. If life can change in the blink of an eye, what will the passage of thirty years do? To find out, Andy begins a search that might lead to heartache and disappointment or a love that will last forever.

Summary:

West is a high school senior who has everything going for him - until an accident leaves him paralysed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, moving in and out of consciousness, West is isolated and alone. Until he meets Olivia. Olivia is the girl next door - though not the typical girl next door. She is in the hospital room next to his, and before long, she's sneaking into his room to talk with him. Only Olivia seems to know what he's thinking, and even dreaming about. Yet certain questions haunt him- Why is Olivia in the hospital? And how is she connected to the terrible dreams he's been having? But the biggest shock of all comes when West must face the possibility that the girl he's fallen in love with - and who's done more to aid his recovery than anyone else - may not even be alive.

Summary:

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.
