Review

Praise for Range

"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

"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.

"Range elevates Epstein to one of the very best science writers at work today. The scope of the book--and the implications--are breathtaking. I find myself applying what I've learned to almost every aspect of my life." --Sebastian Junger, author of Tribe, War, and The Perfect Storm

"Range will force you to rethink the nature of learning, thinking, and being, and reconsider what you thought you knew about optimal education and career paths--and how and why the most successful people in the world do what they do. It's one of the most thought-provoking and enlightening books I've read." --Maria Konnikova, author of Mastermind and The Confidence Game, professional poker player

"A fresh, brisk look at creativity, learning, and the meaning of achievement." --Kirkus Reviews

"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

Praise for The Sports Gene:

"I can't remember a book that has fascinated, educated--and provoked--me as much as The Sports Gene. Epstein has changed forever the way we measure elite athletes and their achievements." --Malcolm Gladwell


"The narrative follows Mr. Epstein's search for the roots of elite sport performance as he encounters characters and stories so engrossing that readers may not realize they're receiving an advanced course in genetics, physiology, and sports medicine." --The New York Times

"An important book." --The Wall Street Journal
"Epstein's rigor in seeking answers and insights is as impressive as the air miles he must have accumulated . . . his book is dazzling and illuminating." --The Guardian (London)

Book Description

Through fascinating stories and vividly explained research, David Epstein demonstrates why, as the world has got increasingly complex, developing range can help us excel.
