Haste makes waste; look before you leap; stop and think. These are warnings we've heard since childhood. But what about, he who hesitates is lost? We look at snap judgments and the powers of unconscious thought, with Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink.


Malcolm Gladwell, New Yorker writer; author, The Tipping Point; latest book is Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking
