"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, bestselling author of Outliers.Range is the ground-breaking and exhilarating New York Times bestselling exploration into how to be successful in the 21st Century, from David Epstein the acclaimed author of The Sports Gene.What if everything you have been taught about how to succeed in life was wrong? From the '10,000 hours rule' to the power of Tiger parenting, we have been taught that success in any field requires early specialization 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 that the way to excel 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 discovered that in most fields - especially those that are complex and unpredictable - generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. They are also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can't see. Range proves that by spreading your knowledge across multiple domains is the key to success rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area. Provocative, rigorous, and engrossing, Range explains how to maintain the benefits of breadth, diverse experience and interdisciplinary thinking in a world that increasingly demands, hyper-specialization.PRAISE FOR RANGE"I want to give Range to any kid who is being forced to take violin lessons-but really wants to learn the drums; to any programmer who secretly dreams of becoming a psychologist; to everyone who wants humans to thrive in an age of robots. Range is full of surprises and hope, a 21st century survival guide." Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World. "An assiduously researched and accessible argument for being a jack of all trades." O Magazine, Best Nonfiction Books Coming in 2019 "Brilliant, timely, and utterly impossible to put down. If you care about improving skill, innovation, and performance, you need to read this book."

The perfect book for anyone who has ever been annoyed that they didn't spend enough time doing just one thing. A delightful rebuttal to the "10,000 hours" theory of mastery, well supported by all lots of research and case studies. ( )
  JohnNienart | Jul 11, 2021 |
For the first few chapters, it seemed like this book was shaping up to be one of those "everybody does X, but Y is better" non-fiction narratives. Don't get me wrong, I love this type of hook. It's anti-conventional wisdom and occasionally the counter-proponents are right. But then David Epstein's Range did a deep dive and convincingly made the case for a broad spectrum of education and experience.

It's almost like specialization was a self-reinforcing problem we should have all seen coming. At the outset it makes sense. Be an expert at something. But then it became extraordinarily difficult to remain an education generalist and still expect a well-paying career. The specialists then naturally and inadvertently siloed themselves and the potential for the problem grew from there. It's difficult to say what will happen long term, but if the expertise of the specialists grows less reliable than the generalists (or possibly even AI), then we could see another cultural work shift.

Time will tell but I believe Range offers a fair warning of what's to come. ( )

I'll start by quoting this from the book:

"Knowledge is a double-edged sword. It allows you to do some things, but it also makes you blind to other things that you could do."

The book's premise is about developing a range of skills than going deep into a few of them. It shows how specialization hinders our growth, though the author admits that specialists are very much required.

Concepts like grit, 10000 hours and deliberate practice are challenged and the advice given is to try a plethora of things early on. It was nice reading about how T- and I-people differ in their contributions to the world.

Personally, I've been benefitted by reading a variety of subjects and hence gaining breadth. But then, being in a technology field, I need to go deep in my field as well. ( )

Exceptional topic, it brings forth the idea that over specialization is over rated and mental meandering is an great tool for the current world.

Great book for late starters or people concerned that they haven't "got it figured" yet. ( )

I was particularly blown away by Chapter 8 - Outsider Advantage. And the peculiarities of DNA. How Jill Viles and Priscilla Lopes-Schliep had a similarity except for one gene which gave muscles to the latter but both had extremely low fat. ( )
