    Description

    The number one New York Times best seller that has all America talking: as seen/heard on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS, Morning Joe, CBS This Morning, The Bill Simmons Podcast, Rich Roll, and more.

    “If you’re a generalist who has ever felt overshadowed by your specialist colleagues, this book is for you.” (Bill Gates)

    “The most important business - and parenting - book of the year.” (Forbes)

    “Urgent and important...an essential read for bosses, parents, coaches, and anyone who cares about improving performance.” (Daniel H. Pink)

    Shortlisted for the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award

    “So much crucial and revelatory information about performance, success, and education.” (Susan Cain, best-selling author of Quiet)

    Plenty of experts argue that anyone who wants to develop a skill, play an instrument, or lead their field should start early, focus intensely, and rack up as many hours of deliberate practice as possible. If you dabble or delay, you’ll never catch up to the people who got a head start. But a closer look at research on the world’s top performers, from professional athletes to Nobel laureates, shows that early specialization is the exception, not the rule. 

    David Epstein examined the world’s most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors, forecasters, and scientists. He discovered that in most fields - especially those that are complex and unpredictable - generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Generalists often find their path late, and they juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. They’re also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can’t see.

    Provocative, rigorous, and engrossing, Range makes a compelling case for actively cultivating inefficiency. Failing a test is the best way to learn. Frequent quitters end up with the most fulfilling careers. The most impactful inventors cross domains rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area. As experts silo themselves further while computers master more of the skills once reserved for highly focused humans, people who think broadly and embrace diverse experiences and perspectives will increasingly thrive.

    Commentaires

    “For reasons I cannot explain, David Epstein manages to make me thoroughly enjoy the experience of being told that everything I thought about something was wrong. I loved Range.” (Malcolm Gladwell, author of Outliers and The Tipping Point)

    “For too long, we’ve believed in a single path to excellence. Start early, specialize soon, narrow your focus, aim for efficiency. But in this groundbreaking book, David Epstein shows that in most domains, the way to excel is something altogether different. Sample widely, gain a breadth of experiences, take detours, and experiment relentlessly. Epstein is a deft writer, equally nimble at telling a great story and unpacking complicated science. And Range is an urgent and important book, an essential read for bosses, parents, coaches, and anyone who cares about improving performance.” (Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive, and A Whole New Mind)

    “In a world that’s increasingly obsessed with specialization, star science writer David Epstein is here to convince you that the future may belong to generalists. It’s a captivating read that will leave you questioning the next steps in your career - and the way you raise your children.” (Adam Grant, author of Give and Take and Originals)

    If you think that you'll benefit from it based on my above notes, I recommend buying it. If you're on the fence, listen to interviews with the author either on the "Invest Like The Best" or the "Econtalk" podcasts to get a better sense.

    Search YouTube and watch the talk called “Greatness Cannot Be Planned.” It extends the ideas from this book in a brilliant way.
    If you like the Greatness Cannot Be Planned, then you’ll also enjoy the following books: “So Good They Can’t Ignore You,” “Where Good Ideas Come From,” and the chapter on the evolution of technology from “The Evolution of Everything.”
    Also search google for the blog post “Focus May Be Your Worst Enemy in Biotech R&D” — it also resonates with the ideas from this book.

    P.S. If you’re a curious person, and you probably are because you’re looking at books and reading the reviews, definitely get this book!
    P.P.S. This book is the next “Sapiens.”

    Anecdotes Around an Assertion

    Apologies about alliteration, but this is one of those books that uses a mess of examples to drive home a general point. The narrator does an acceptable job delivering a sometimes interesting series of accounts that essentially state that specialists get bogged in their field while generalists drive real change. It will make you feel good if you’re the latter and it will offend you if that the former. As a former NPS ranger who has applied a natural history degree to the tech world, I enjoyed it, but I’m exactly the type who this book should please.

    Excellent read for 50 somethings like myself who has peaked in one field but is far from done in contributing to this world.

    I am 50 something and her and CEO and people keep asking me what do I do now that I’ve peaked. I am nowhere close to being done and my contributing to my country, people of Guam or family. This book is in inspiration to all of us who have meandered our way through our lives to relative success but still feel like Caesar that our life has just begun!!

    Recommended to overbearing parents who think a head start in everything is the answer

    Great book, especially today with so many soon-to-be parents and new parents planning, waiting on long lists and paying exorbitant $ on day care, with the hopes of giving their child a “head start.” Same is true for the parents putting young children in camps and paying professional coaches to teach them sports. This author debunks these approaches to instead focus on getting a broad array of experiences and allowing uncoached play first before specializing and formal training. After all, he says, you don’t know what your natural skills and interests will be until much later in life. The author does a great job of explaining that skills you’ve gathered in areas unrelated to the field you ultimately focus on is never wasted. It adds to your understanding and gives you a breadth of tools to utilize. It gives you Range.

    Lastly, I don’t understand reviews that say “it could have been shorter” because the authors point was made much earlier. The stories he shared were so fascinating that I couldn’t care less if his thesis was clear in the first chapter. If you enjoy books and learning stop trying to hack knowledge. If you read through the entire book he made this point as well. It’s a lifelong journey. Slow down and enjoy!

    Generally Speaking…

    As someone who has a vast amount of hobbies and interests I found Range to be a very well informed look at the idealized nature of success based on having a wealth of experience to draw upon. Epstein is a wonderful writer whom I have enjoyed since his time at Sports Illustrated and Will Damron did a great job narrating the book. If you are someone in a field where innovation is the order of the day this book is for you. If you work in HR, Management, or College admissions, this is the book for you. Understanding how to look at all the salient data points to see the full story of a problem, product, or most importantly a person is broken down in Range to help you find the most successful teams in the last place you'd think to look.

    Gladwell-Esque Supplement to Fuzzy and the Techie

    3.5 — I can't help but think of this in relation to The Fuzzy and the Techie: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World. Both address a similar idea, but with with slightly different focuses. Range was more personal, sharing case studies of individuals who got late starts or hopped across industries/careers/specializations. Stylistically, it's one of those Gladwell-esque books that follows the case-study-illustrating-a-broader-lesson formula. What has stuck with me from The Fuzzy and the Techie, in contrast, was the more societal stuff: how some of the jobs we think of as most secure (STEM, coding, etc.) may actually be vulnerable as AI and automation advance, whereas cross-disciplinary, expansive, critical thinking-oriented skill sets will be in demand (because those functions simply can't be replicated by computers). On that front, I thought Fuzzy was stronger, but Range was a great supplement, particularly in its explanation of "kind" vs. "wicked" learning environments and those implications. The case studies were interesting, too, running the gamut from Roger Federer to musically virtuousic brothel orphans.

    I wish I had this book 10 years ago

    Having been raised, and currently living, in an environment dominated by the philosophy of “Grit” and the “10,000 hour rule”, this book is a refreshing look at those who have thrived on the other end of that spectrum. I wish this book was written 10 years ago; it would have saved me a lot of time and grief.

    A gem worth 6 out of 5 stars

    Wow. The book description does not come close to justifying the depth, importance, knowledge value, quality of writing AND narration, breadth of life and career applicability, insight, credibility, and even the level of entertainment contained herein. Epstein did a stellar job of painting a complete picture of how we think, problem solve, interact, learn, grow, and progress in life. Showing the necessity of continuous analytical curiosity and critical thinking development.

    This book contains mountains of important lessons, perfectly curated to provide a complete, deep understanding of our skill sets in the world. I have a top five reading list in psychology, critical thinking, statistics, and philosophy.. this book thoroughly competes with the entire combination of my essential reads.

    I could go on and on. But I’ll end with this, if you have any interest in deep learning and critical thinking, this book is my #1 recommendation for most important work of the decade.

    Interesting

    Interesting content, but falls short of proving the case that one is better off embracing being a generalist today to "triumph" (present tense) as the subtitle suggests. It rather makes an interesting case as to why generalists should be more valued than they currently are.

    Wundervoll

    Der Autor erzählt von genau dem Thema, über das ich mir seit Jahren den Kopf zerbreche. Ich gehöre zu den Menschen, die viele Interessen haben und von einer Sache zur nächsten springen. Das sah ich immer als Nachteil den Menschen gegenüber, die sich intensiv auf eine Sache spezialisieren. David Epstein hat meine Meinung mit seinem Buch geändert. Ich kann dieses Buch nur jedem empfehlen, der sich die Frage stellt, was er aus seinem Leben machen soll.

    repetitive and gets boring

    some anecdotes were really nice, especially the one about Federer and woods at the beginning, or the one about van Gogh, but I couldn't finish it, it feels like you know everything he wants to tell you after the first chapter already and he doesn't get to the point or anything new after that.

    Highly enlightening master piece

    We live in a world of specialism. Specialists are at the top of the food chain when it comes to reputation. Eager parents push their children into a bright specialist career because specialists like doctors and lawyers or pilots don't need to worry about being needed/paid. While young people who are not sure about their career choice get the increasing believe that they are falling "behind". Which might lead to self doubt and self limiting believes. It get only worse when they start qutitting things like the first job just because they think it don't fit to them. Pressure from outside might then lead to a disaster. We'll, "quitters never win", right?

    David Epstein demonstrates in "Range" that a world of specialists lack the creativity our ever increasing complex world needs so badly to solve the mankind's biggest problems. Without bold generalist who can think outside the box, humanity is exposed to specialists who only have conditioned solutions instead of field combining approaches which can solve the most wicked problems just by looking at it from a different perspective. The financial crisis 2008 turning into an ongoing debt/value crisis is the latest example of specialism caused disaster on a global scale. Epstein delivers more examples, despite the fact that not every disaster can be traced back to cultural stiffness while living in it.

    Hence, the real disaster is not the experimental phases of (young) people but the latent discrimination of not settlers who prefer to learn in width instead of depth. If young generalists feel if they are too old to learn and succeed in something and therefore don't try it at all that's a major tragedy. Because it prohibits the possible gain mankind could harness by those creative minds who never got the chance to develop themselves. The world needs not only specialization. It also needs generelists who don't stick to one topic or field but are able to cross different sections to make sure we don't lose the bigger picture. No one should feel behind. This book explains why.

    welcome to the wicked world

    David Epstein shows in an interesting way how the world and its requirements for us as humans have changed (becoming more complex) and what this means for us, given one wants to be successful and inventive in the future. He has a lot of reference points from biographies and scientific research which also gives good follow-up points.
    clear recommendation for all parents send those who firmly belief that specialization is the only true key to success

    The book itself has no Range!

    I rarely struggel to finish a book like I did with this one.
    It has one idea (a nice idea actually!), and so many long, long chapters that repeat the same idea over and over again!!
    So basecly I liked the First few chapters, got bored in the middel and was about to kill myself during the last ones

    A must read for anyone who feels left behind

    In a world where we almost always feel overwhelmed by self doubt and unachievable targets we set ourselves, this book really is a feel good book. Empowers leaders especially those who feel their experience in the particular task is inadequate(which is sadly most of us) It touches upon examples on leadership, decision making, problem solving and most importantly trying to get out there and try something outside of one's comfort zone.

    Good book countering common perceived wisdom

    Good book giving numerous examples of why over-specialisation is not always helpful - especially at an early age. Great narrator: coincidentally I bought 2 books read by the same person within a few weeks: great reader for audio books.

    Interesting but not enlightening

    The book starts kind of strong, at least I was hooked about the stories, with which the author tried to show that range might be a superpower in a specialised world...at least I thought so, maybe because I see myself as a generalist rather than a specialist. Eventually, towards the end of the book, the author seems to reiterate over the same information..nothing new in that sense. However, all in all still an interesting book, which takes on a "new" concept with conveying arguments and stories.
