Product description

Review

One of "The Hottest Spring Nonfiction Books"
--The Wall Street Journal

A "Leadership Book to Watch for in 2016"
--The Washington Post

A "Must-Read Business Book for 2016"
--Forbes

One of "The Year's Best Life Hacks"
--Glamour

"Angela Duckworth [is] the psychologist who has made 'grit' the reigning buzzword in education-policy circles...Duckworth's ideas about the cultivation of tenacity have clearly changed some lives for the better...In this book, Duckworth, whose TED talk has been viewed more than eight million times, brings her lessons to the reading public."
--Judith Shulevitz, The New York Times Book Review

"It really isn't talent but practice--along with passion--that makes perfect, explains psychologist Duckworth in this illuminating book. Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere."
--People

"Psychologists have spent decades searching for the secret of success, but Angela Duckworth is the one who found it. In this smart and lively book, she not only tells us what it is, but also how to get it."
--Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness

"Grit is a persuasive and fascinating response to the cult of IQ fundamentalism. Duckworth reminds us that it is character and perseverance that set the successful apart."
--Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers

"Impressively fresh and original...Grit scrubs away preconceptions about how far our potential can take us."
--Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

"Fascinating. Angela Duckworth pulls together decades of psychological research, inspiring success stories from business and sports, and her own unique personal experience and distills it all into a set of practical strategies to make yourself and your children more motivated, more passionate, and more persistent at work and at school."
--Paul Tough, author of How Children Succeed
