GRIT
The New Science of What it Takes to Persevere, Flourish, Succeed
by Paul Stoltz, Ph.D.

ClimbStrong Press © 2014, 178 pages

Using the Science of Grit to Achieve Your Goals

Consultant and author Paul Stoltz has previously written extensively on adversity, developing what he calls the "Adversity Quotient," which measures the ability to leverage setbacks and failures into success. Stoltz has more recently discovered, however, that while AQ is essential to success, it is not sufficient. As he explains in his new book, GRIT: The New Science of What It Takes to Persevere, Flourish, Succeed, "If AQ is all about how you effectively deal with 'it' – whatever comes at you – then GRIT is about what it takes to really go for 'it' – your boldest and most important goals – and make 'it' happen." AQ, he writes, is your defense, but GRIT is your offense.
