    Description

    The instant Sunday Times top 10 and New York Times best seller.

    Shortlisted for the Financial Times/Mckinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2019.

    A Financial Times Essential Reads of 2019 pick.

    A powerful argument for how to succeed in any field: develop broad interests and skills while everyone around you is rushing to specialize. From the ‘10,000 hours rule’ to the power of Tiger parenting, we have been taught that success in any field requires early specialisation and many hours of deliberate practice. And, worse, that if you dabble or delay, you'll never catch up with those who got a head start. This is completely wrong.

    In this landmark book, David Epstein shows you that the way to succeed is by sampling widely, gaining a breadth of experiences, taking detours, experimenting relentlessly, juggling many interests - in other words, by developing range.

    Studying the world's most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors and scientists, Epstein demonstrates why in most fields - especially those that are complex and unpredictable - generalists, not specialists are primed to excel. No matter what you do, where you are in life, whether you are a teacher, student, scientist, business analyst, parent, job hunter, retiree, you will see the world differently after you've listened to Range. You'll understand better how we solve problems, how we learn and how we succeed. You'll see why failing a test is the best way to learn and why frequent quitters end up with the most fulfilling careers. As experts silo themselves further while computers master more of the skills once reserved for highly focused humans, Range shows how people who think broadly and embrace diverse experiences and perspectives will increasingly thrive and why spreading your knowledge across multiple domains is the key to your success and how to achieve it.

    Hopeful message for the late bloomers

    Great book with some fascinating insights about the benefits of experimenting with different fields. A lot of the content is covered in other books but it comes together nicely in Range.

    excellent read

    innovation and discovery happens at the edges of specialization, where the people are able to establish the interface and see through horizontally. priceless.

    Brilliant! A must read!

    In a world filled with people obsessing over a head start, this book teaches us the value of slowing down, diversifying, experimenting and coming out on top. I highly recommend !

    Something you should read

    There's a whole industry related to hyper specialisation and a big focus on it.
    People like Tiger Woods who were groomed from a very young age to do nothing else but play Golf.

    But this book advocates for the majority of people who, like myself, try many things before finding what they are good at.

    The main points are that finding the right fit matters more than a head start.
    That having skills in multiple areas can be very useful.
    That understanding and using lots of different mental models and analogies is powerful for creativity.
    The author pulls in work from the book Superforecasting which shows how generalists regularly outperform specialists at forecasting the future but often still need the advice from specialists.
    Actually the best option is when generalists and specialists work together.
    There's also pokymaths. People who specialise in a particular area but also have a lot of general knowledge in a lot of different fields.

    This book resonated with me. I followed a route of lots of experimentation. Got my pilots licence before I could drive. Did everything from choir and dance to Tae Kwon do and army cadets. I did 3D animation and competed in the RoboCup challenge. Thought I'd go into Uni doing robotics but now I am a web developer who creates stock footage and helps run an activist movement around transitioning to a Post Scarcity Society.

    Web development is my specialisation but I'm still trying to create startup companies and want to write a SciFi novel.

    So yeah I resonate with this book.

    Given what I've heard, being someone with range is the standard. So you likely resonate with it too.

    Great Book

    This is a book that is packed with lessons and many life examples. As a generalist myself, I found the lessons quite eye opening. I would love to listen to it again as I am sure I missed some parts of it. One thing I've learnt is that we over hype specialization without looking at what it took the person to be successful and that people that have Range tend bring to the table what specialists fail to see. There should not be an overbearing concentration on specialization or getting a head start. People can get to their peak and have impact without having an early start.

    Necessary for anyone with ambition or self doubt

    I loved the variety of case studies and was surprised by the number of people I thought were specialists who I now know we're generalists.

    Life changing and life affirming

    This books helped me at a period in life where I left my career comfort zone and decided to Explore a carrier in a new domain. Ive been successful as a Special but at peace with adding Range so late in life, so keep growing and be more diverse and hopefully innovate

    strenuous framework actions

    The author's message is so buried under lengthy stories full of boring details. It is really difficult to work your way through this book.
