Malcolm Gladwell looks at a host of occupations in Blink, art dealers and appraisers being the one that stood out to me. He relays the story of stolen art and the man who was brought in to authenticate forgeries. This might sound dry and esoteric but Gladwell has an excellent way of bouncing between the history of how one develops such a skill, the mystery and then the detective who is applying this ability to blink, to sum up an understanding in a few seconds and discern the truth.
This and Gladwell's other books give those of us with casual talents, professional talents, insights into how human beings outside of fantastical situations are applying great talents. Try it out, you might find out some amazing things about yourself.
