    Inhaltsangabe

    The number one New York Times best seller that has all America talking: as seen/heard on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS, Morning Joe, CBS This Morning, The Bill Simmons Podcast, Rich Roll, and more.

    “If you’re a generalist who has ever felt overshadowed by your specialist colleagues, this book is for you.” (Bill Gates)

    “The most important business - and parenting - book of the year.” (Forbes)

    “Urgent and important...an essential read for bosses, parents, coaches, and anyone who cares about improving performance.” (Daniel H. Pink)

    Shortlisted for the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award

    “So much crucial and revelatory information about performance, success, and education.” (Susan Cain, best-selling author of Quiet)

    Plenty of experts argue that anyone who wants to develop a skill, play an instrument, or lead their field should start early, focus intensely, and rack up as many hours of deliberate practice as possible. If you dabble or delay, you’ll never catch up to the people who got a head start. But a closer look at research on the world’s top performers, from professional athletes to Nobel laureates, shows that early specialization is the exception, not the rule. 

    David Epstein examined the world’s most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors, forecasters, and scientists. He discovered that in most fields - especially those that are complex and unpredictable - generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Generalists often find their path late, and they juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. They’re also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can’t see.

    Provocative, rigorous, and engrossing, Range makes a compelling case for actively cultivating inefficiency. Failing a test is the best way to learn. Frequent quitters end up with the most fulfilling careers. The most impactful inventors cross domains rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area. As experts silo themselves further while computers master more of the skills once reserved for highly focused humans, people who think broadly and embrace diverse experiences and perspectives will increasingly thrive.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “For reasons I cannot explain, 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, author of Outliers and The Tipping Point)

    “For too long, we’ve believed in a single path to excellence. Start early, specialize soon, narrow your focus, aim for efficiency. But in this groundbreaking book, David Epstein shows that in most domains, the way to excel is something altogether different. Sample widely, gain a breadth of experiences, take detours, and experiment relentlessly. Epstein is a deft writer, equally nimble at telling a great story and unpacking complicated science. And Range is an urgent and important book, an essential read for bosses, parents, coaches, and anyone who cares about improving performance.” (Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive, and A Whole New Mind)

    “In a world that’s increasingly obsessed with specialization, star science writer David Epstein is here to convince you that the future may belong to generalists. It’s a captivating read that will leave you questioning the next steps in your career - and the way you raise your children.” (Adam Grant, author of Give and Take and Originals)

    Wundervoll

    Der Autor erzählt von genau dem Thema, über das ich mir seit Jahren den Kopf zerbreche. Ich gehöre zu den Menschen, die viele Interessen haben und von einer Sache zur nächsten springen. Das sah ich immer als Nachteil den Menschen gegenüber, die sich intensiv auf eine Sache spezialisieren. David Epstein hat meine Meinung mit seinem Buch geändert. Ich kann dieses Buch nur jedem empfehlen, der sich die Frage stellt, was er aus seinem Leben machen soll.

    repetitive and gets boring

    some anecdotes were really nice, especially the one about Federer and woods at the beginning, or the one about van Gogh, but I couldn't finish it, it feels like you know everything he wants to tell you after the first chapter already and he doesn't get to the point or anything new after that.

    Highly enlightening master piece

    We live in a world of specialism. Specialists are at the top of the food chain when it comes to reputation. Eager parents push their children into a bright specialist career because specialists like doctors and lawyers or pilots don't need to worry about being needed/paid. While young people who are not sure about their career choice get the increasing believe that they are falling "behind". Which might lead to self doubt and self limiting believes. It get only worse when they start qutitting things like the first job just because they think it don't fit to them. Pressure from outside might then lead to a disaster. We'll, "quitters never win", right?

    David Epstein demonstrates in "Range" that a world of specialists lack the creativity our ever increasing complex world needs so badly to solve the mankind's biggest problems. Without bold generalist who can think outside the box, humanity is exposed to specialists who only have conditioned solutions instead of field combining approaches which can solve the most wicked problems just by looking at it from a different perspective. The financial crisis 2008 turning into an ongoing debt/value crisis is the latest example of specialism caused disaster on a global scale. Epstein delivers more examples, despite the fact that not every disaster can be traced back to cultural stiffness while living in it.

    Hence, the real disaster is not the experimental phases of (young) people but the latent discrimination of not settlers who prefer to learn in width instead of depth. If young generalists feel if they are too old to learn and succeed in something and therefore don't try it at all that's a major tragedy. Because it prohibits the possible gain mankind could harness by those creative minds who never got the chance to develop themselves. The world needs not only specialization. It also needs generelists who don't stick to one topic or field but are able to cross different sections to make sure we don't lose the bigger picture. No one should feel behind. This book explains why.

    welcome to the wicked world

    David Epstein shows in an interesting way how the world and its requirements for us as humans have changed (becoming more complex) and what this means for us, given one wants to be successful and inventive in the future. He has a lot of reference points from biographies and scientific research which also gives good follow-up points.
    clear recommendation for all parents send those who firmly belief that specialization is the only true key to success

    The book itself has no Range!

    I rarely struggel to finish a book like I did with this one.
    It has one idea (a nice idea actually!), and so many long, long chapters that repeat the same idea over and over again!!
    So basecly I liked the First few chapters, got bored in the middel and was about to kill myself during the last ones

    It's a basic idea and endless practical examples

    If all of America is talking about this, it's only because the author is preying on low self esteem and low intellect

    A must read for anyone who feels left behind

    In a world where we almost always feel overwhelmed by self doubt and unachievable targets we set ourselves, this book really is a feel good book. Empowers leaders especially those who feel their experience in the particular task is inadequate(which is sadly most of us) It touches upon examples on leadership, decision making, problem solving and most importantly trying to get out there and try something outside of one's comfort zone.

    Good book countering common perceived wisdom

    Good book giving numerous examples of why over-specialisation is not always helpful - especially at an early age. Great narrator: coincidentally I bought 2 books read by the same person within a few weeks: great reader for audio books.

    More interesting than expected

    The books goes through numerous examples illustrating how the exposure to a broad range of experiences can yield greater results on the long run. A recommended reading.
