    The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: Success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues for a very different understanding of what makes a successful child. Drawing on groundbreaking research in neuroscience, economics, and psychology, Tough shows that the qualities that matter most have less to do with IQ and more to do with character: skills like grit, curiosity, conscientiousness, and optimism.

    "Surprisingly refreshing"

    What did you love best about How Children Succeed?

    I loved the honest look at where the children that our society looks down upon come from. I loved that Mr. Tough explored what really goes on in our country and how we can fix it. As a child that grew up like most of the children in Paul Tough's book, it was a real wake up call as to how I can be a better mother to my children, so they are ahead of the game and that they have the skills necessary not only to survive, but thrive throughout their whole lives. It's a great book and one that I think everyone should read at least once.
