There’s hope for the passionate generalist.
My least favorite part about this book is that it ended.
Reading this wasn’t just entertaining and interesting, it actually gave me hope where usually I feel like the world’s waiting impatiently for me to specialize. Epstein thoroughly explores how people learn and apply themselves with a mixture of research and (non-fictional) storytelling.
There can be immense value learning across different domains, and breadth of experience can be the critical factor solving new kinds of problems and making predictions.
I loved this book.
