If you're looking for a quick and to the point read, I highly recommend.
but you know how it is .
I have to read more books on the subject you could have missed something or perhaps theres something that you dont know but somebody else does.

As you would expect, if you were being realistic, there is no magic trick to attaining real expertise and the author is clear about that, which is good. If you’re serious about becoming an expert then he does lay out a number of helpful structured approaches for getting there, but he also mentions that it could take you the better part of 10,000 hours to get there. I think this realism is to the author’s credit.
All of that said, I think there is one key gap he doesn’t cover and that’s “experience” or, more specifically, “track record”. He uses at one point the example of financial services and suggests that reading everything ever written by the top 5 thinkers on the topic would qualify you as an expert. In the sense that you would know more than 99% of the public, that’s probably true. But, the real reason, in my view, that people see Warren Buffet, Ray Dalio and others as experts in financial services is because they have the track record of putting their expertise into practice and coming out on top. This element, for my money, isn’t given enough coverage in this book, and I think the same would apply to gaining real expertise in many other fields eg brain surgery, architecture, car design, etc. So I think the book is really more focused on building theoretical expertise.
Overall a good book and the section on learning alone makes it worth reading, but I do wish he had talked more about the value of track record.
