We’re all beginners under the skin

From Don’t Make Me Think by Steve Krug:

We’re all beginners under the skin.  Scratch an expert  and you’ll often find someone who’s muddling through – just at a higher level.

Experts are rarely insulted by something that is clear enough for beginners.  Everyone appreciates clarity.  (True clarity, that is, and not just something that’s been “dumbed down.”)
