Finished reading "b l i n k"

blink Ah ... finally this afternoon, I finished reading "blink" by Malcolm Gladwell. It is a good book - there are many interesting facts that I am going to test - but not as good as his "Tipping Point" though. I wanted to write a review for it, but I don't think I have the time and energy to do it. I do have a list of good books list (in Bahasa Indonesia). It's in http://budi.insan.co.id/buku-bagus. Tipping Point is listed in that page.

I made an effort to go to Starbucks (at Ciwalk, Bandung) to finish it. It has been dragging me for quite a while. (It was in my backpack all the time, but for some reasons I just didn't have time to read it. I had to make time for it.) With a mug of caffee lattee, I gulped the last chapter. Done. Now I can move on to the next book(s) in my to-read-stack.

Saya selesai bacanya 2 minggu lalu. Bagian yang menarik adalah bagian test :D saya perlu waktu 2 minggu utk nyelesaiin buku ini dan sepertinya harus saya ulang lagi supaya bisa lebih "melengket" :)

Tadi denger ceramah Aa Gym (di radio MQ) dia mencuplik salah satu cerita yang ada di buku blink ini, yaitu cerita tentang penembakan Ronald Reagan yang hanya berlangsung dalam tempo 3 detik.
Senang juga melihat orang seperti Aa Gym rajin baca buku, termasuk buku b l i n k ini.

tulisan gladwell emang bagus, tapi mesti ati2 karena nggak sedikit kesimpulan dia yg bertentangan dengan riset2 dibidang yg dia kutip. komentar saya ada di sini :D
