            What is expertise? How do experts become expert? And how can you become one, too? What do lace makers share with pulmonary surgeons? Saville Row tailors with molecular scientists? Jazz musicians with fighter pilots? Seemingly, they have very little in common, other than being eno...rmously skilled experts. But, Professor Kneebone has spent his life looking more carefully, finding the points of connection. Because whilst the outcome is always different, the journey to expertise is the same. In this groundbreaking book, Professor Roger Kneebone, presents his findings and walks us down the path of mastery. Drawing on new science, cutting edge research, and the lived experience of a fascinating and enormously diverse group of people who are exceptional at what they do, Professor Kneebone shows how the experts became experts. And in so doing, shows how to become experts ourselves.
