    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.

    What made the experience of listening to How Children Succeed the most enjoyable?

    This is a great book.. I listened to it and actually bought the hard copy as a reference. But the reader is not great. He is fine when doing the normal book but when he tries to do the "accents" of various people in the books, particularly African American young people, it is extremely off-putting.
