Welcome to Notes on Quotes, an interview series in which Stephen Harrison chats with notable people about a quote that’s meaningful to them.

David Epstein is the author of two New York Times bestselling books—The Sports Gene in 2013, and his most recent work, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World.  David was previously a science and investigative reporter at ProPublica. Before that, he was a senior writer at Sports Illustrated. He has master’s degrees in both environmental science and journalism, and his TED Talk about innovation or the lack thereof in sports has been viewed more than seven million times. Malcolm Gladwell said, “For reasons I cannot explain, David Epstein manages to make me thoroughly enjoy the experience of being told that everything I thought about a subject was wrong.”
