A generalist myself, I found a lot to like about this book. However, there may be some confirmation bias in thinking that everything he writes about a generalist’s power is brilliant. Nonetheless, he provides several excellent examples of why generalists often see connections that specialists miss.
And don’t think that it is one way or the other, you are not always a generalist or confined to being a specialist. You may be a generalist in certain areas and a specialist and others. Or even better, you may be a generalist who has a few areas of specialty and/or has friends who are specialists in lots of different areas. There are also several intriguing ideas presented about decision making, finding the right match for your life/career, and debunking some of the notions about the value of “grit.” I would highly recommend this book.
