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.

I enjoyed this book and it is an interesting idea. It starts an ends talking about what a micromastery is, but most chapters are just suggestions for ones to try. This book could be improved with a more academic approach to detailing why it's worth pursuing and an online community led repository of suggestions and resources for enriching your life though short bursts of learning... otherwise, it's just musing.
