In his international bestseller How Children Succeed, 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 Helping Children Succeed, he outlines the practical steps that adults - from parents and teachers to policymakers and philanthropists - can take to improve the chances of every child, however adverse their circumstances. And he mines the latest research in psychology and neuroscience to show how creating the right environments, both at home and at school, can instil personal qualities vital for future success.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Around the world, countries are embracing early-childhood projects, opening snazzy centres and dispatching home visitors. But too many projects are of poor quality. Mr Tough shows that it need not be this way. * The Economist *
[A book] you really should read. * Huffington Post *
Packed with . . . research-based insights into addressing students' core social and emotional needs. For the past decade or more Tough has been one of the pre-eminent reporters translating education research for public consumption. His new, slim book is no exception, and it contains some surprises for fans of his previous work. * NPR *
This book upends everything we thought we knew about where grit comes from and how to get it. * Quartz *
Tough is adept at translating academic jargon into precise, accessible prose . . . Tough promotes [his argument] so persuasively. * New York Times *
