Reviews

  • 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
  • Every parent should read this book – and every policymaker, too.

    Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit
  • A timely and essential message … a brilliantly readable account of the growing evidence that inner resources count more than any amount of extra teaching support or after-school programmes when it comes to overcoming education disadvantage

    Independent
  • Absorbing and important.

    New York Times
