What is Grit and Why Does It Matter?

Oct 18, 2019

Author Angela Duckworth provides a compelling case for why grit -- not natural talent -- matters much more to our overall success in life. 

This week, we're reviewing her instant #1 New York Times bestseller Grit: The Power and Passion of Perseverance.

Angela Duckworth is an American academic, psychologist, and popular science author. She is the Christopher H. Browne  distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, where she studies grit and self-control. She is also the Founder and CEO of Character Lab, a not-for-profit whose mission is to advance the science and practice of character development.

We cover each of the three parts in this Grit book review:

Part 1: What Grit Is and Why It Matters

Part 2: Growing Grit from the Inside Out

Part 3: Growing Grit from the Outside In
