Experts and expertise

 

Sir, – Further to recent correspondence on these pages (July 12th and 13th), I don’t know who it was who first said it, but an expert is someone who learns more and more about less and less until he knows everything about nothing, whereas a consultant is someone who learns less and less about more and more until he knows nothing about everything. – Yours, etc,
