    A Jack of any trade we choose.

    Packed with great quotes to illustrate every point this book drives home the idea of diversifying your knowledge. Being a jack of all trades means that you possess a working knowledge over a wide range of topics. I really liked reading this fact because it helped me overcome the tendency I have to want to know everything about one particular topic. This is a mistake because we waste energy knowing the particulars of a topic that most people can’t relate to or find useful. The trick is knowing how far to learn about something. The book is effective by emboldening every word that you need to know. You practically skim through this book but glean every important principle from the pages. It’s full of clever sayings that keep you paying attention and feel like you are learning quickly. Chapter 3 is full of great examples of people throughout history with a desire to learn. Biographies of the successful always instill the desire to succeed in those who read them. This book seamlessly ties in Renaissance men of yester year with the possibility of the reader becoming a modern renaissance man/woman. This talked about in chapter 4 when nature versus nurture is discussed. People are born with talents but is that everything? Of course not. The book states that if we work hard we can deliver skills that match any natural talent. We can become Jacks of any trade we choose.
