His New York Times best-seller, “The Sports Gene,” took readers inside the surprising science of extraordinary athletic performance. His latest book, #1 New York Times best-seller “Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World,” examines the world’s top performers, from professional athletes to artists, scientists, entrepreneurs and Nobel laureates. In “Range,” Epstein brings bold new insights to business, education, technological innovation, healthcare and other industries on the best approach to career development, hiring and retention amid rapid technological change. His conclusion: In most fields, especially those that are complex, unpredictable, and difficult to automate, generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel.
