Book Review “How Children Succeed”

I just finished the book “How Children Succeed – Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character” by Paul Tough. This book is an amazing look at how a child succeeds from a scientific/sociological view with studies, individual cases, and statistics to back up his beliefs. I loved this book! It looks at how people of all different classes are being failed by the education system in the United States. There is a lot of emphasis on children raised in poverty and why it is so hard to go beyond the class you were born in to. I suggest this book to anyone interested in how children really learn and what attributes make a child most likely to succeed both in college and in life. This book is also a must read for anyone that wants to make a difference in the education system or even the education of only their children.
