    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.

    Any additional comments?

    i wasted my credits for this. it reads like a college thesis than anything else. it is about observed behaviors of kids who triumphed over difficulties (which i myself can deduce) as in duh, why do i need a book to show me this, i can see it with my classmates and friends. what i was looking for was a book to provide step by step instruction on how to make children succeed. super boring.
