Range Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Session with getting a head start is understandable; early specialization feels efficient But Epstein marshals an enormous body of scientific research to argue that we should all actively cultivate inefficiency Failing a test is the best way to learn Freuent uitters end up with the most fulfilling careers The most impactful inventors cross domains rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area Provocative rigorous and engrossing Range explains how to maintain the benefits of breadth diverse experience interdisciplinary thinking and delayed concentration in a world that increasingly incentivizes even demands hyperspecializatio Now THIS is how you write a compelling non fiction book This has catapulted itself on my must have shelf after the introduction aloneThe topic is nothing new specialized thinking vs broad thinking We have it in evolution in Darwin s famous fitness of surviving species It has nothing to do with size or teeth or muscle strength Rather it s about adaptability It also applies to thinking processesThus the author examines the different psychological variations within the human population throughout historyWe get athletes like Tiger Woods vs Roger Federer totally opposite upbringing both highly successful we get artists like Van Gogh or Miyazaki both for the same point we get the woman who saved the Girl Scouts of America we get chess champions not masters vs computers we get musicians like the orphans of one of the goodwill hospitals in VeniceThere are many stories of people being successful or not All these stories along with many studies show that being a polymath is the way to go Yes there are some outliers such as Tiger Woods but generally speaking it s better to nurture many interests and try out different things taking risks instead of always just falling back on experience though there is nothing wrong with experience itself it s just that it doesn t help in every situationInterestingly I had to think of many experiences from my own life For example Germany has different kinds of graduations at high schools science heavy art heavy general and I chose the general Abitur Then I had to decide about my future and after being told and believing I couldn t do what I wanted yes I m regretting it especially after this book I studied linguistics But I decided against a university as those students only study vocabulary and grammar it was too narrow for me and didn t promise good chances to get a job later instead opting for a private school that taught geography history and politics of all the countries where the language I chose was spoken plus IT and finance on top of that It was definitely the right way to go though my degree is considered less than that with a university stamp which isn t worth anything when applying for a job thoughTheoretical knowledge alone wasn t worth as much as theory plus practical appliance so I won I do regret not risking much when I was younger instead being talked into fearing failure This book showcases that there necessarily isn t any fault in making mistakes and trying one thing after another An important lessonThere are some almost unbelievable stories in here Such as the Navy SEAL the author met personally Or the United States Military Academy West Point and how it had to adapt completely misjudging the situation Or how some people raised their children not necessarily in a bad way the accomplishments are what s unbelievable To say nothing of NASA engineers having to puzzle over problems before the Challenger launch we all know how that ended or the professors trying to teach their students to not only interpret any given data but to ask if this is the data they indeed needIt also hints at what we need to do change going forward Standardized tests like the US school system uses are the death of innovation And other countries aren t doing much better People are no longer if ever encouraged to really solve problems but to categorize them according to pre established templates But life doesn t always happen according to pre ordained patterns We need polymaths and unafraid ones as thatPersonally I loved the history lessons here In telling the reader of certain people throughout history the author managed to show the psychological differences he was talking about Along the way we even get a few exercises to solve lolMoreover the way events and theories are presented is downright thrilling and funny and down to earth The writing isn t simplistic but it s also not unnecessarily complex We get swept along at breakneck speed and I enjoyed every minute of this ride Not many non fiction books manage to break a topic down in such a charming way and convey so much information so successfully if it s not presented in a dry fashion one is much likely to remember itFantastic book
