PINKCAST 3.05: This is how to keep a book of small experiments.

In his blazing hot new book, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World, author David Epstein argues that in business and in life, short-term experiments are more effective than long-term planning.

Now, in a brand-new Pinkcast, Epstein shows how to put this powerful idea into action. 

You can watch the 181-second video below.


  • David Epstein’s latest book is Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World. (Buy it at Amazon,, IndieBound, or 8CR.)
  • You might also enjoy his first book, The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance. (Buy it at Amazon,, IndieBound, or 8CR.)

ONE MORE THING: Earplugs, jumbo pencils, and fish spatulas

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of being a guest on one of my favorite podcasts: Cool Tools, hosted by Kevin Kelly and Mark Frauenfelder. What I love about the show is its simple format. On each 15-minute episode, a guest describes four “cool tools” — gadgets, software, kitchen gear, office supplies, books, web sites, whatever — that he or she can’t live without. That's it.

So, if you’re looking for a way to reduce noise, scribble notes, or elegantly flip grilled salmon, give a listen to our interview. Or go straight to the list.

(Bonus: Thanks to Seth Godin, another loyal Cool Tools listener, I now also swear by this grilling tool.)

As always, thanks for subscribing. May your tools always be cool and your fish grilled to perfection.
