Book Recommendation: Range

In this insightful book, author David Epstein presentes well-researched arguments to explain how in our modern world “generalists” (people with a broad range of experience) can have an advantage over specialists with a more narrow field. The book shows that it sometimes takes an outsider or late-starter in a certain field for work to bring fresh persepctives to it, using methods and tools unfamiliar to the specialists who may be too focused on their own scope to notice how things are done outside of it. It’s therefore important for us to acquire a wider base of general knowledge and gain exposure into many fields that could spark our next insight.
