Among the book's key concepts are the 10 000 Hour Rule (the hours of practice necessary to become an expert) and the Matthew Effect (the idea that advantages accumulate).

    Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking is an engaging, thought-provoking look at the factors that influence our subconscious decision-making and guide our instincts. The book's key concept is that of `thin-slicing', whereby the use of a streamlined source of information allows our brains to focus on the most relevant information and draw highly accurate conclusions from it. Gladwell uses a series of scientific case studies and entertaining anecdotes to take the reader on a tour behind the `locked door' of their subconscious in order to better understand the reasoning behind their own snap decisions. Blink is a key text in the field of 21st-century popular psychology, and has sold over two million copies worldwide to date.

    Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of the most successful business and self-help books of all time. Instead of putting success down to luck or innate talent, Covey claims that effective individuals move up in the world thanks to a small number of techniques that, when applied on a daily, habitual basis, subtly change the way you interact with and are seen by others. He also speaks out against what he likes to call "the Personality Ethic" and instead promotes his own concept, "the Character Ethic". The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has enjoyed incredible success since its publication, selling more than 25 million copies and spawning a series of spin-offs.
