Contraportada:

"I wish I could take this compact, powerful, clear-eyed, beautifully written book and put it in the hands of every parent, teacher, and politician. At its core is a notion that is electrifying in its originality and its optimism: that character not cognition is central to success, and that character can be taught. How Children Succeed will change the way you think about children. But more than that: it will fill you with a sense of what could be." Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here

"Paul Tough has written the definitive book on the character traits that define success, both in the classroom and beyond. He has given us a whole new way of thinking about why character matters and how children succeed." Jonah Lehrer, author of Imagine and How We Decide

"Nurturing successful kids isn t a game of chance. There are new, powerful ideas about how to help children thrive, innovations that have transformed schools, homes, and lives. Paul Tough has scoured the science and interviewed the experts, and now he s written an instruction manual for the rest of us." Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit"

Nota de la solapa:

Why do some children succeed while others fail?
The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs.
But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most have more to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control.
How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories and the stories of the children they are trying to help Tough traces the links between childhood stress and life success. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do and do not prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how toimprove the lives ofchildren growing up in poverty.
Early adversity, scientists have come to understand, not only affects the conditions of children s lives, it can also alter the physical development of their brains. Butinnovative thinkersaround the country are nowusing this knowledge tohelp children overcome the constraints of poverty. With the right support, as Tough s extraordinary reporting makes clear, children who grow up in the most painful circumstances can go on to achieve amazing things.
This provocative and profoundly hopeful book has the potential to change how we raise our children, how we run our schools, and how we construct our social safety net. It will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.
