Title: How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character

Author: Paul Tough

Published: July 2013

Book Summary:

Paul Tough challenges prevailing ideas about intelligence and success by drawing a contrast between the current main focus of education — cognitive skills, knowledge, and experience — and frequently neglected “non-cognitive” skills. ¬†When children succeed, it’s often because they have mastered such non-cognitive skills as persistence, grit, self-control, and curiosity.
