--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.
One of The Hottest Spring Nonfiction Books
--The Wall Street Journal
One of "The Year's Best Life Hacks"
"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
"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
"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
