"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 "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 "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 "Psychologists have spent decades searching for the secret of success, but Angela Duckworth is the one who found it.
