Tipping point and Blink.

Without exageration, these books will change the way you see the world.

Tipping point is about the world and society in general.

Blink is about your own mind and some very surprising (scientificaly proven, not just random claim) revelations about yourself.

highly recomend both.

Reading about what the books are about at Wikipedia, they don't seem to be as mindblowing as you claim. Certainly, they seem interesting, but the concepts are already known to me.

I might have to check the books out some day, though.

I'd never heard of the concepts before, so they were probably quite a bit more jarring for me.

I just question my own thinking at every corner now, because of Blink.
I always try to deduce whether i'm telling myself the truth or not...
