TIME’s Best Books of May Features "Range" by APB's David Epstein
22 May 2019
What’s the most effective path to success in virtually any profession or organization? It’s not what you think. In his acclaimed new book, Range—recently recognized by TIME as one of the best books of May—David Epstein, the New York Times best-selling author of The Sports Gene, debunks the myth that specialization is the secret to success.
Sharing research on the world’s top performers—from professional athletes to Nobel laureates and CEOs—he proves that in most fields, generalists have the winning edge. Asserting that failing is the best way to learn and that frequent quitters end up with the most fulfilling careers, Epstein’s fascinating talks share unexpected insights for anyone looking to lead and achieve in a fast-changing and increasingly complicated world.
