Grit By: Angela Duckworth
“Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another.”
Grit describes what creates outstanding achievements, based on science, interviews with high achievers from various fields and the personal history of success of the author, Angela Duckworth, uncovering that achievement isn’t reserved for the talented only, but for those with passion and perseverance.
