This review is from: How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough (30 Minute Expert Summary) (Kindle Edition)
The summary of How Children Succeed. . . In 30 Minutes a great quick read. It clearly outlines the main points of the book in a clear and concise manner. After reading the summary, I have a strong understanding of how childhood conditions will impact future success. Paul Tough, author of How Children Succeed Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, examines the importance of IQ scores versus the impact of character development to gauge academic success, i.e. college graduation. This summary highlights Tough's research which reveals character traits and character development throughout childhood can positively impact future success. While not all children are academically inclined, most are able to sharpen character traits such as grit, perseverance, and will power which all contribute to future success. This research appeals to a wide variety of audiences such as parents, teachers, and mentors of children. Everyone can benefit from a quick read through this summary.
