Book Log: Rethinking Expertise

Rethinking ExpertiseRethinking Expertise by Harry Collins

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting exploration of the meaning of scientific expertise.

This was one of my first forays into the world of e-books. I bought the Nook version and read it mostly on my Android phone. I discovered that the software for the phone is really not up to what is necessary for this kind of book. The images were illegible, and it is very cumbersome (to the point of not being worth it) to look at footnotes. I'm afraid that my frustrations with the medium may have affected my outlook on the book, so I'm going to refrain from commenting much more on it.
