"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." Daniel Coyle, author of The Culture Code and The Talent Code "A fresh, brisk look at creativity, learning, and the meaning of achievement." Kirkus Reviews "It's a joy to spend hours in the company of a writer as gifted as David Epstein. And the joy is all the greater when that writer shares so much crucial and revelatory information about performance, success, and education." Susan Cain, author of Quiet… (mais)

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. ( )
  vpfluke | Dec 22, 2020 |
Nothing really controversial here: "look around you, be curious and you'll have more ideas". Except for a small run at "the research system", "Grit" and "Tiger" for self-selecting only very specialized narrow people and elevate them as examples.
But as always, a long litany of (sometimes) interesting examples. Does not really prove anything. ( )
  jbrieu | Nov 6, 2020 |
Well researched book that encourages you to learn a lot and understand that the more you know, the more likely you are to be wrong about something that isn't identical to the things that you know. Interesting examples. Highly recommended for people who are struggling with the idea of having to "be" something - as in "what are you going to be when you grow up". The answer is well read, well loved, and excited to learn more. You don't need to be a certain thing to make those things happen.

Quotes:
"Those who did not make a creative contribution to their field lacked aesthetic interests outside their narrow area. Creative achievers tend to have broad interest."

"for learning that is both durable (it sticks) and flexible (it can be applied broadly), fast and easy is precisely the problem."

"Being fired to generate answers improves subsequent learning even if the generated answer is wrong."

"Dropping familiar tools is particularly difficult for experience professionals who rely on what Wieck called over learned behavior. That is, they have done the same thing in response to the same challenges over and over until the behavior has become so automatic that they no longer even recognize it as a situation-specific tool. research on aviation accidents, for example, found that "A common pattern was the crew's decision to continue with their original plan", even when conditions changed dramatically."

And he refused to specialize in anything, preferring to keep an eye on the overall estate rather than any of its parts. . . . And Nikolay’s management produced the most brilliant results.
