Book review of 'Micromastery: Learn Small, Learn Fast, and Find the Hidden Path to Happiness' by Robert Twigger
My current interest in micro-learning techniques led to introduction to the book "Micromastery: Learn Small, Learn Fast, and Find the Hidden Path to Happiness" by one of my Facebook friends who is a keen sketch notes designer since the book exemplifies honing of this skill through micro-mastery which is the central theme of the book.

The book by Robert Twigger is written in the self-help style with instructions and guidelines for honing the skills through small steps with enough practice to take each sub-skill to mastery level to really be spontaneous in each skill with a finesse.

The author defines micro-mastery as 'a self-contained unit of doing, complete in itself but connected to a greater field' and provides you the practice in small steps at mastery level to almost become flawless.

The book advocated that each sub-skill should be followed passionately and practiced for hours for what the author say 'micro-mastery'. Not only that, each skill should also be used to nurture multiple areas of knowledge and activities to further hone its application.

Published by Penguin-UK, this 256-page book is more of a practice book which illustrates different actions to be practiced for perfection. If practice is done by dividing the skill-area of learning into quantifiable units of expertise and devoting ourselves passionately to learn them to demonstrate mastery. The author claims that micro-mastery is capable of improving our brain health and boosting our happiness.

Before putting yourself to advance on to a new skill, the book advises you to start with small and specific acts to get on to the path mastery since each step and sub-skill counts. This way, micro-mastery provides a sure-fire path to learning and happiness through a feeling of success.

Being a self-help book, it is to be used, pursued and practiced to get better and better in small steps till spontaneity is achieved. Being a 'doing book' - the taste of the pudding lies in eating it ? sums up the review of the book. Personally, I feel, the techniques and processes in the book can be effectively used for new learners of any age or ability.
