I just finished Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking the other day and thought it was a very brilliant book. Some of the subjects went over my head, but other stuff nailed me very well, while other stuff just blew my mind.

Has anyone else read this book? It's basically about the power our subconscious has in making snap decisions and knowing what's going on before we ACTUALLY understand what's going on. The author uses many examples to explain how our mind words. He opened the book with a statue that many experts looked at. Three immediately knew it was a fake, but the museum kept with it anyway, challenging their snap decision.

I enjoyed the bit about our faces and how sometimes people make a little face that our mind picks up on, but you'd have to do slow motion to actually see it! There's thousands of expressions our faces can make! WOW!
