I got hold of this book after reading Derek’s book notes. I was a bit skeptical at first because of the title, as I thought it would be just another book trying to use a famous quote. But after reading the book notes I was convinced that I have to read this one. The book is an absolute beauty and is a must read for everyone. Cal Newport has used simple words with very good examples to show you how and why skills trump passion. I don’t have much to add on what the book outlines as Derek has done a great job outlining the major points. You can read it here.
