ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking," by Malcolm Gladwell. According to Gladwell, decisions made very quickly can be every bit as good as decisions made cautiously and deliberately; there can be as much value in the blink of an eye as in months of rational analysis. Every day, medical practitioners must make such high-stakes decisions rapidly and often under stressful conditions. Medical practitioners are also under increasing pressure to integrate evidence from scientific studies into their decision-making procedures. What professionals need more than facile encouragement to make thin-sliced snap decisions is a sober, clear-eyed disquisition on that all-important "how can we know what is correct" question.
