The Invisible Gorilla Pdf Review:
The book is a research experiment conducted by the authors. In the experiment, people are made to watch a video in which two teams, one wearing black shirts and the other wearing white shirts, are sitting in a circle and are passing a basketball around. The viewers are asked to count the number of times the ball is passed by the black or the whole shirt. Alternately, the viewers are asked to count the passes that were aerial and the passes that were dribbled. Then, a woman with an umbrella or a woman in a gorilla suit passes in the video. Most people fail to spot the gorilla and when the experiment was conducted, half the people reported that they had not seen any gorilla or anything else out of the ordinary.
The others, that had seen the gorilla, did not count the number of passes right. What this experiment shows is that when focused on one thing, we tend to overlook anything else that is happening at the same time in the same place.
