When I get knocked down, I'll get back up.  I may not be the smartest person in the room, but I'll strive to be the grittiest.

In this must-read for anyone seeking to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth takes us on an eye-opening journey to discover the true qualities that lead to outstanding achievement.

From her own childhood upbringing to her extensive research into success, Duckworth provides a valuable insight into our will and desire to succeed. 

Having spent many years studying the psychology of success in sports and business people, Angela Duckworth concluded that 'talent' is not what makes humans more likely to succeed. In fact it is a series of qualities she defines as 'grit' that set the successful apart.


Winningly personal, insightful and powerful, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that - not talent or luck - makes all the difference.

'Impressively fresh and original' - Susan Cain, author of Quiet

'Fascinating and persuasive' - Malcolm Gladwell

MEDIA REVIEWS
"GRIT is a persuasive and fascinating response to the cult of IQ fundamentalism. Duckworth reminds us that it is character and perseverance that set the successful apart." * Malcolm Gladwell *
"Impressively fresh and original ... GRIT scrubs away preconceptions about how far our potential can take us. And it solves the riddle of how those not likely to succeed in fact do. Buy this, send copies to your friends, and tell the world that there is, in fact, hope. We can all dazzle." * Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author *
"At a time when our collective notion of success has shrunk to the point of being unrecognizable, Angela Duckworth arrives to restore it. With a mix of masterful storytelling and the latest science, she shows that perseverance and passion matter at least as much as talent and intelligence. And far from simply urging us to work harder for the sake of working harder, Grit offers a truly sane perspective: that true success comes when we devote ourselves to endeavors that give us joy and purpose." * Arianna Huffington, bestselling author of Thrive *
"This book will change your life. Fascinating, rigorous, and practical, Grit is destined to be a classic in the literature of success." * Dan Heath, bestselling co-author of Made to Stick, Switch and Decisive *
"Angela Duckworth has written a contemporary classic - a clarifying and deeply-researched book in the tradition of Stephen Covey and Carol Dweck. For anyone hoping to work smarter or live better, GRIT is an essential - and perhaps life-changing - read." * Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell is Human *
