★★★★ (-3.38%) 🛈

Interesting book about how generalists have value, and there might be a myth about those single-minded people who start in one discipline and stay there.

It’s good, but the different chapters are not well-differentiated – the titles are vague, and I had trouble following the development of the narrative. I couldn’t tell how one chapter was any different than another.

It also falls into over-anecdotalism, a la Gladwell. Some sections just feel like story after story, and sometimes you can’t figure out how the stories relate to the central point.
