    " The title should be different. If you are looking for a parenting book about how children succeed, this ain't it. The author has a long list of reasons about how children don't succeed and supporting scientific studied and examples. Author basically blames single mothers, poverty, abuse and bad parenting. I eventually had to abandon the book and chalk it up to being duped by the title. "

    " There were some interesting stories and idea in this book, but overall it was disjointed. I am not sure I really learned anything or have a clear idea what the author's point was. "

    " Tough provided a thought-provoking introduction to important issues in education reform. As someone who hasn't done much reading on this subject, I can't say how many of his conclusions are unique or revolutionary, but I did appreciate the mixture of background information and original reporting. I also enjoyed the last section of the book, which brought the issues to a more personal level. "

    " Liked it. Not really earth shattering stuff......kind of thought all of this was true anyway but every teacher and parent would benefit from reading it. "

    " Nothing truly groundbreaking "

    " Compelling and exceptionally well-written. "

    " Revelatory for many thinkers in education. All to real for educators working I. Our countries roughest schools. The research here is really well done. Tough does a great job trying to string together research for the idea that education is not a simple one tone. Fix this than that. Better teachers better results, or more testing higher test scores. Character, which is a term I hate, seems to be one of the only ways to convey the concept of soft skills being more important than cognitive skills. Please reference the TED talk by Sir Robinson. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen Fisher | 12/5/2013

    " A must read for every educator...Yes! But also for parents! Steeped in well placed data and concludes with a refreshing appraisal of current trends in education reform. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Nolley | 10/3/2013

    " One of the top 2 or 3 books I've read on the topic of education. Provides a great blueprint for how we should approach the education of our children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 8/27/2013

    " A good look at character building as a part of education. A sad commentary on today's society where this is neglected in the home situation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 7/22/2013

    " I was a little disappointed. I did not really learn anything new. I gave it 2 stars because it was obviously a labor of love for the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trever | 9/26/2010

    " Decent book uses quite a bit of research. Interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly Edberg | 6/3/2010

    " This is a book that MUST be read by EVERYONE but especially parents and teachers - If we all could take the time to engage with books like this, we could solve our education crisis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Huntington | 5/12/2010

    " Good info, but I wanted him to tell me specifically how to make my kids grittier. "

    " Superb book. There's something in here for everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/21/2010

    " I thought this book was very interesting, and confirming for someone like me who isn't really a natural scholar but made it through college! I think what it has to say about nurturing and the importance of perseverance and other important character traits is important for parents to know about. "
