I am only about a third of the way through Jimmy's book, but I'd sum up my observations as follows:

1.) you have to be courageous enough to look where no one else is looking

and/or

2.) you have to look at what others are looking at, but able to see something else

This is more Charlie Munger like than Buffet like. Buffet adheres to a tight circle of competence, Munger likes to know a "little about a lot" and believes education across a diverse and liberal arts curriculum makes numbers one and two possible, much like Rogers interest in history.
