- Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World
- Written by: David Epstein

David Epstein examined the world’s most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors, forecasters, and scientists. He discovered that in most fields - especially those that are complex and unpredictable - generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Generalists often find their path late, and they juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. They’re also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can’t see.

Great ideas, great stories.
As someone who works in a field that promotes specialization but is in desperate need of innovation this provides ammunition to push for more diversity in the workplace.

Tigana is the magical story of a beleaguered land struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the black sorcery of a cruel, despotic king that even the name of their once-beautiful homeland cannot be spoken or remembered.
But after years of devastation, a handful of courageous men and women embark upon a dangerous crusade to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the dark world the brilliance of a long-lost name: Tigana.
A classic fantasy masterpiece

One of the best ever.
Love, battles, intrigue. A real page turner set in a historical context with relevant moral issues related to controlling the history of a people.
