Menakem's expert understanding of the human experience cannot be understated, particularly when it comes to conflict and violence. Guiding the reader on a path to uncover bodily held trauma, he works with the discomfort that arises, all while explaining how and why the pervasive racism in the United States is inherently held in a physical, subconscious, and, sometimes, overwhelming way. This book brought life changing lessons into my life that I use most days to practice clean pain and a grounded body. ~ Reviewed by Maya Bon

The best books give us a new way to see the world. RANGE did this for me not once or twice, but consistently over the course of 12 chapters all playing off of a central theme as evident in the book's subtitle: "Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World." each chapter challenges a seemingly self evident conventional wisdom of our modern world such as: "trust the experts," "the sooner you specialize the better," "never give up," or "the more experience the better." ~ Reviewed by Sam Baker
