Product description


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

Fabulous . . .If you are interested in champions' journeys, this is for you -- Judy Murray on Twitter

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

An urgent and important book,
an essential read for bosses, parents, coaches, and anyone who cares about improving performance -- Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell is Human

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 Originals and co-author of Option B


A goldmine of surprising insights.
Makes you smarter with every page -- James Clear, New York Times bestselling author of Atomic Habits

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 Talent Code

I want to give
Range 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.

The storytelling is so dramatic, the wielding of data so deft and the lessons so strikingly framed …[it’s]
a pleasure to read . . . Range offers such a wealth of thought-provoking materialNew York Times Books Review

Range elevates Epstein to one of the very best science writers at work today. The scope of the book―and the implications―are breathtaking -- Sebastian Junger, filmmaker and author of The Perfect Storm

One of the most
thought-provoking and enlightening books I’ve read -- Maria Konnikova, poker player and author of The Confidence Game

fresh, brisk look at creativity, learning, and the meaning of achievement ― Kirkus Reviews

assiduously researched and accessible argument for being a jack of all trades -- O Magazine, Best Nonfiction Books Coming in 2019

Range is a convincing, engaging survey of research and anecdotes that confirm a thoughtful, collaborative world is also a better and more innovative one --

As David Epstein shows us,
cultivating range prepares us for the wickedly unanticipated . . . a well-supported and smoothly written case on behalf of breadth and late starts ― Wall Street Journal

A clear and unfussy writer . . . this book is likely to resonate strongly with most teachers --

Anyone contemplating a change of career late in life will find
Range immensely reassuring. If you calculate that you don't have 10,000 hours left in which you can reasonably practice, you can use your range to connect ideas and use your varied experience. ― Daniel Finkelstein, The Times

Masterful.Perfect holiday reading -- Dr Adam Rutherford

In this fascinating book, David Epstein argues that although the world seems to demand more and more specialization - in your career, for example - what we actually need is more people 'who start broad and embrace diverse experiences and perspectives while they progress'. His examples run from Roger Federer to Charles Darwin to Cold War-era experts on Soviet affairs. I think his ideas even help explain some of Microsoft’s success, because we hired people who had real breadth within their field and across domains.
If you’re a generalist who has ever felt overshadowed by your specialist colleagues, this book is for you. -- Bill Gates
