    Although Tim doesn’t mention it, this is a good talk to show the implicit learning of experts, and how, what they think they know, isn’t what they actually know.

    Of course, I don’t want to diminish the value of the expert too much. Even if it is internalized, there is still value in what they know.

    His book is great and he is a very nice guy. I wrote him an e-mail after his book was released and he wrote back a helpful, informative response.
