01 Aug 2019
Best-selling author of The Sports Gene, APB speaker David Epstein published Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World to rave reviews from Malcolm Gladwell, The New York Times, NPR and more.
In Range, Epstein asserts that generalization and diverse experiences help people become more successful across areas including business, science, music, sports and parenting. Malcolm Gladwell, famous for his theory about 10,000 hours of practice, says “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.” Jim Holt of The New York Times enthusiastically states, “…the storytelling is so dramatic, the wielding of data so deft and the lessons so strikingly framed that it’s never less than a pleasure to read.” Bradley Babendir of NPR says, “Range is a convincing, engaging survey of research and anecdotes that confirm a thoughtful, collaborative world is also a better and more innovative one.”
A top speaker sought-after by businesses, healthcare professionals, educators and parents alike, Epstein reveals the keys to achieving high performance in any domain while debunking popular myths along the way. His authoritative insights have led Range to become part of JP Morgan’s summer reading list as well as land at the top of Amazon’s bestsellers list alongside Michele Obama’s Becoming and The Washington Posts’ The Mueller Report.
