In 2002 the Pentagon staged one of the largest war games in history. They called it the Millennium Challenge. The scenario it enacted was very similar to our situation with Saddam Hussein at that time - a rebel military commander in the Persian Gulf was harboring terrorists and spewing Anti-American propaganda.

Gladwell selection shows a beautiful example on page 246 to prove how the philharmonics music director is to emphasize the inequality of woman musicians to men. He also uses rhetorical questions like “No one pain attention to how auditions were held...what did it matter? Music was music.” (249)

Thin slicing: aka: taking minute details about someone or something in order to form a larger opinion. Focuses on the research of psychologist John Gottman, who can determine the certainty of how long a marriage may last with an accuracy of 90% by observing couples for 15 minutes of less. He studies the couples' body language. His main contribution is the idea that humans do not need to know a great deal about someone else to determine that person's personality.
