Find out why and how generalists can triumph in a complex, specialized world

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.

If you find it hard to stick to a job or career path, this book shows that you’re not alone. And, if you’re already a specialist in a particular domain, this book offers interesting insights on how to expand your range to improve learning, creativity and innovation.

Here are some key takeaways you can expect from this summary:

• Know 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. 

• Learn 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.

• Find out 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.
