RANGE: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

by David Epstein

In this book, David Epstein challenges conventional wisdom that success is best achieved through hyperspecialization, and children should be nurtured in a specific field as early as possible to give them a head-start. He uses stories and research studies to show why and how range can be equally (if not more) critical for long-term successes in a complex world.

In this summary, you’ll learn:

• The difference between kind vs wicked learning environments, and why you need to balance specialization with range. Understand the roles of wide-sampling, range and abstraction in learning, discovery, problem-solving, creativity and innovation. 

• Specific learning strategies that’d improve long-term results, how to tackle unfamiliar problems, tap on the outsider advantage, and combine vertical with lateral thinking for maximum creativity.

• How you can discover about yourself and identify your ideal career through short-term planning, experimentation, and late-specialization. Know when to drop familiar tools, quit your existing path, and improve your forecasting abilities.

Who should read this:

• Teachers, educators, trainers and people developers
• Anyone who wants to unlock their full potential or find their ideal career path
