What do lace makers share with vascular surgeons? Savile Row tailors with molecular scientists? Jazz musicians with fighter pilots? Seemingly they have little in common, other than being skilled at what they do. But Roger Kneebone, an expert on experts, has spent his life finding points of connection. As he shows, while the outcome may be very different, the journey to becoming expert is always the same. In this book, Kneebone combines cutting-edge research, including his own work with extraordinary experts, with traditions from the medievalguilds. He revals with colour and panache the symbiotic system that creates and sustains experts, whatever their field.
