Suppose you have to accomplish a given task using a framework
which is unknown to you. The manual is 1000 pages long.
In order to get the job done, it is enough to study 50 pages
of it. There are people with the ability to figure out very
quickly which are the relevant 50 pages and ignore the other
950. Granted, these people will have a shallow knowledge with
respect to somebody studying the whole manual, but they
will get the job done much faster and in some circumstances
speed is more valuable than deep knowledge.
To be able to content himself with a shallow knowledge
is a useful skill ;)
