About this item

Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on standardized tests. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and grit.

How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories, Tough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people?s lives.

This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.
