Publisher's Summary

We hear that we must be passionate about only one thing, that 10,000 hours of hard practice is needed to achieve mastery. But in fact most successful people, including Nobel Prize winners, nurture multiple areas of knowledge and activity that feed their central subject.

Whether it's making a perfect soufflé, dancing a tango or lighting a fire, when we take the time to cultivate small and quantifiable areas of expertise, we change everything. We become faster and more fearless learners, spot more creative opportunities, improve our brain health and boost our happiness. We see knowledge itself completely differently. The skills acquired in painting a door flawlessly or growing delicious chilies will unexpectedly transform your life.

So start small. Start specific. But start - and you'll be on the path to mastery.

    "Not much substance"

    Interested in the idea of the book, and I know the author can write well - angry white pyjamas was excellent - but feel like this might have been written to order as a "self help" book.
    Despite starting off by saying it's not about "hacks", that's exactly what it then becomes about, instead of the original idea of mastering small things for their own sake.

    "Amazing book"

    Excellent narration, great subject, lots of fun to listen to.

    Fairly simple concept but presented in an informative way with examples of micromasteries to inspire or to be getting on with. The light easy style hides the true depth of this way of thinking. This is definitely a book I will be listening to multiple times. It's not a traditional 'self help' book but it provides a polymathic tenplate for life that may lead to a genuine paradigm shift.

    "Some great learnings via real examples"

    Great narrator. Good depth in the human nature of learning and getting better at something. I found the first part of the book insightful and the middle part too lengthy but with good real life example that brought it all to life.
