About the Authors
  • In this updated and expanded edition of The Cambridge Handbook of Expertise and Expert Performance, some of the world's foremost experts on expertise share their scientific knowledge of expertise and expert performance and show how experts may differ from non-experts in terms of development, training, reasoning, knowledge, and social support. The book reviews innovative methods for measuring experts' knowledge and performance in relevant tasks. Sixteen major domains of expertise are covered, including sports, music, medicine, business, writing, and drawing, with leading researchers summarizing their knowledge about the structure and acquisition of expert skills and knowledge, and discussing future prospects. General issues that cut across most domains are reviewed in chapters on various aspects of expertise, such as general and practical intelligence, differences in brain activity, self-regulated learning, deliberate practice, aging, knowledge management, and creativity.

    • The revised handbook will remain the primary source for anyone wanting to get an updated review of the current knowledge, by providing a comprehensive review of the current knowledge about expertise in all major domains
    • This book is for anyone interested in studying expert performance and expertise in their own domain of expertise, with its up-to-date knowledge of methods and concepts spanning forty areas
    • Any individual interested in improving their own or their employees' performance will find in this book detailed analysis of training methods for improving performance in all major domains of expertise

    Reviews & endorsements

    Advance praise: 'The pursuit of expertise is of course as old as humankind. There have been many breakthroughs but also many false starts, dead ends, and outright errors. It is only now - finally! - that the pursuit of expertise is getting the treatment it deserved all along, and this Cambridge Handbook is the definitive compendium of that treatment: empirical, thoughtful, and exceedingly useful. The new ideas and insights in this revised and expanded edition are particularly welcome, as the world of expertise has changed a lot in the past ten years!' Stephen J. Dubner, host of Freakonomics Radio and co-author of the Freakonomics book series

    Advance praise: 'The second edition of this Handbook reflects the voluminous scholarship on expertise since publication of the first edition, while retaining its positive features. The 42 chapters by leading experts provide a magnificent overview of diverse facets of expertise. Anyone interested in the subject will want to own this volume.' Henry L. Roediger, III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Washington University, St. Louis

    Advance praise: 'Expertise is a multifaceted phenomenon. And this volume mobilizes an interdisciplinary team of world-class scholars to craft just the right lenses for bringing the unifying themes into focus. Odd though it sounds, it is possible to be an expert on expertise.' Philip E. Tetlock, Annenberg University Professor, University of Pennsylvania and author of Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?

    Advance praise: 'A truly remarkable achievement, from the original expert on expertise: a deep, wide, and impressively complete look at the science of human excellence. If you’re interested in understanding what creates great performance, you will find no better resource than this book.' Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code and The Culture Code
