Book Summary Overview

In this New York Times best seller, Angela Duckworth takes the listener to the playing field of achievement to demystify exceptional performance and distill success into its bare, learnable components. Duckworth contends that IQ, socioeconomic status, physical ability, and other predetermined qualities do not count for as much as effort, passion, and perseverance in any story of success. She draws from her positive psychology research and from the experiences of “grit paragons” to argue for a theory of success that is as accessible as it is inspirational.
