Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most have more to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-­control. How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories—and the stories of the children they are trying to help—Tough traces the links between childhood stress and life success. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do—and do not—prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to help children growing up in poverty. Early adversity, scientists have come to understand, can not . . .

At a time when many adults are seeking to heal the pain of their childhoods, it is perhaps no surprise that the hidden Jewish children of World War II are coming forward to share their remarkable memories.

In these ten stories, we relive an extraordinary time in history, a time of unbelievable cruelty and of unexpected acts of compassion, through the all-­seeing eyes of the youth. The children's experiences range from the truly horrific to the touchingly humane: problems of identity, divided loyalties, survivor's guilt and religious ambiguity are common to all, yet the fact of their survival was invariably the result of some act of kindness. As Abe Foxman of the Anti-­Defamation League has said, “For fifty, years, survivors testified about the depths of evil. Now it is time to bear witness to goodness.­”

Poignant, painful, yet ultimately uplifting, the stories resonate throughout with a timeless appeal, as the forces of goodness play out their powerful tune.
