Counsellors, parents and teachers will find this book to be one of the most unique thought-provoking practical and somewhat unconventional guides they've ever picked up. It is based on recent research that tells us that a person's grit (hard work, determination, perseverance) combined with good soft (social) skills are better predictors of future success than IQ grade point averages and standardised test scores. Although the book focuses on several serious topics it is filled with humour short stories and motivational quotes.
