Eh.
Summary
This is the fourth book in the Walk series. Alan has to recover from brain surgery and does so at home with his dad. When he gets back on the road it just seemed as though it was more of the same, where he slept, what he ate and a few short stories of the people he meets.
Enjoy?
I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first ones. It seemed pretty repetitious.
Suggest?
I would only if they wanted to continue the series.
Title
How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character
Author
Paul Tough
Rating
Excellent!
Summary
Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most with children are non-cognitive, and have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control.
Enjoy?
Yes, I enjoyed the book because the author's case gives hope for how we raise our children, run our schools, and construct our social supports.
Suggest?
I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in better understanding the current childhood experiences of today's youth. The author's writing is very informative and concise (yet packed with research backed evidence). The author's points are worth reading twice (especially chapters 1, 2 and the conclusion.
