thinking about thinking about thinking

Two good books:
  • "Everyday Survival:Why Smart People Do Stupid Things" by Laurence Gonzales
  • "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" by Malcolm Gladwell

It would be an oversimplification to say "think before you think" is the motto of the first, and "don't think before you think" is the motto of the second, but that will get you started thinking about how these two books can complement and dovetail each other; it's refreshing to read them in tandem.
