Summary:
In his previous book, "Paul Tough introduced us to research showing that personal qualities like perseverance, self-control, and conscientiousness play a critical role in children's success. Now, [in his new book], Tough takes on a new set of pressing questions: What does growing up in poverty do to children's mental and physical development? How does adversity at home affect their success in the classroom, from preschool to high school? And what practical steps can the adults who are responsible for them--from parents and teachers to policy makers and philanthropists--take to improve their chances for a positive future?"--Dust jacket flap.
