Here's a sneak peek into Paul's book: The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests. But Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most have more to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control.
