This book is a balanced one that argues for broader experience but does not go fully against specialization. Epstein convincingly argues that the most wicked problems or most novel solutions will emerge not from hyper specialists (I-shaped learners) but generalists with feisty in one or two fields (T-shaped learners). A must read for students and faculty, as well as parents.

I was expecting it to be about critical evaluation of issues facing India based on Thapar's interviews. It turned out to be his autobiography. Very interesting stories from a privileged childhood to an accidental career to a well carved niche in the field. Gives good peep into who's who of Indian politics and also some from Pakistan. A book worth the time you spend on it.

Excellent arguments

Loved every bit of it. The arguments are amazing. The book steers away from any emotional appeals to convince the listener. The arguments for such a charged theme are presented using cold , calculated, scientific method. A must read for anyone with a religious bent of mind, or those who do not accept religion's logic.

Loved the book

I was aware of Kahneman and Tversky' work. This book gave an in depth glimpse into it. Breaks so many myths about rational humans. A must read.
