London: Constable, 1988. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Brown cloth with bright silver titling on spine. No ownership inscription. Illustrations. 200 pages clean and tight. `O Happiness! our being's end and aim! Good, Pleasure, Ease, Content! Whate'er thy name: That something still which prompts th'eternal sigh, For which we bear to live, or dare to die...' Pope's memorable lines from his Essay on Man, written between 1733 and 1734, reflect his own search for the harmonious state of mind that the Greek philosophers had already described in so many different words. Peter Quennell has been fascinated by the subject since his early childhood, when, having, he tells us, `an introspective and vaguely meditative turn', he first sought to understand its meaning, and wonder if either he or the people he knew best - for example, his devoted parents - had successfully achieved it. His latest book is an attempt to follow the pursuit of happiness as it has been recorded by creative artists, and demonstrate how it has affected the works and lives of individual men and women. Peter Quennell combines a sharply discerning eye with a lifelong love of literature; and his wide reading enables him to chart and analyse the pursuit that most human beings have shared from the earliest days of history. It has set innumerable modern writers and artists to work, and may even, he thinks, have sometimes inspired the caveman-painters of the Old Stone Age. . First Edition. Hard Cover.

Malcolm Gladwell

Titolo:

Blink. The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

ISBN:

: For Blink, Malcolm Gladwell, author of the bestselling The Tipping Point explores the extraordinarily perceptive and deceptive power of the sub-conscious mind. Gladwell’s major claim is that decisions made very quickly can be every bit as good as a decision made cautiously and deliberately. What we are actually doing is what Gladwell calls ‘thin-slicing’. When we leap to a decision or have a hunch our unconscious is sifting through the situation in front of us looking for a pattern, throwing out the irrelevant information and zeroing in on what really matters. Our unconscious mind is so good at this that it often delivers a better answer than more deliberate and protracted ways of thinking. Much of this is utterly mysterious but some of the most astonishing and useful examples of thin-slicing can be learned.

 

Gladwell hopes to convince us that our snap judgements and first impressions can be educated and controlled so instead of merely praising the mysterious process of instinct and intuition he is interested in those moments when our instincts betray us, the situations where our powers of rapid cognition can go awry, where we fail to read the signs. Most disturbing of all is the degree to which culturally determined preconceptions and prejudices control us. Without reducing matters to racism and sexism Gladwell shows us that there are facts about people’s appearance—their size or shape or color or sex—that can trigger a very similar set of powerful associations which explains why utter mediocrities (such as U.S. President Warren Harding) can sometimes end up in positions of enormous responsibility; or why tall people earn substantially more than their shorter colleagues; or why car salesmen unconsciously charge prices according to race and gender.

 

Gladwell’s conversational prose style is concise, informative, accessible and entertaining. The stories, scientific findings and psychological tests are consistently surprising whether he is dealing with speed-dating, record promotions, police shoot-outs, the human face, or the reasons doctors get sued
