Tops in the Field

The question about wanting to write to a tech writer who is tops in his
field brings a question to mind:

What identifies someone as tops in their field?

I recently had a writer tell me that she was one of the top ten writers
in the Silicon Valley. I asked her how she knew that, and she said, "I
just know."

But really, is it just a perception, or does everyone agree on who is
tops in the field, and why?
