An excellent New Yorker article from Malcolm Gladwell arguing that the mind, when faced with psychological trauma, is suprisingly resilient. What’s more, here is a writer who is prepared to research the psychological literature to back up his arguments. And he can write. It’s a miracle!
If you’ve heard his name and can’t quite place him then, he’s the author of a new book on ‘rapid cognition’, called Blink.
