Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

Available in: Hardcover, eBook, Paperback

In Angela Duckworth’s view, the adage that only practice makes perfect is not only true; it is inexorable. Indeed, the secret to achievement is not talent or genius, says Duckworth, but pure persistence, what she calls “grit.” Through interviews with some of the world’s highest achievers to historical anecdotes to insights gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance, Duckworth reveals that the ability to persevere is perhaps the greatest talent of all.
