Ask HN: Best books you read in 2012


xiaoma: It's the result of years of his research on the process a human goes through to achieve mastery in a field. It breaks the process down to key components and stages and examines masters of various disciplines that exemplify these concepts. The subjects were pretty varied, from Leonardo to Darwin to PG! In short this book is everything I had originally hoped for in Outliers.
