How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough | Book Summary | Abbey Beathan
(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.)
Learn what actually are the most important factors that makes a successful child. Spoiler alert: It's not intelligence.
The vast majority of people think that the most important factor when predicting how successful a child will be when he grows up is intelligence but it turns out that it's not the most important quality, not even close. Society has wrongly credited IQ as the decisive trait that guarantees success but it's actually curiosity, optimism and grit and those are the ones we should be working on.

"Optimists, by contrast, look for specific, limited, short-term explanations for bad events, and as a result, in the face of a setback, they're more likely to pick themselves up and try again." – Paul Tough
