Blink

blink.jpg Just finished reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell.

What a great read.  Fundamentally, it is a book about the kind of thinking that happens very quickly, when to trust those snap decisions, and when to question them.  The kinds of issues we improvisers are quite familiar with (in fact, there’s a brief section on improvised theatre).

I’m not sure that reading this book will make you a better improviser, but for an improv teacher, this book is packed full of insights into how the brain works under pressure.

And it’s just really well written.

I’m going to let it sit for a couple of weeks, then go back through it.
