Praise for The Gift of Failure:

  • Lahey adds the welcome perspective of a middle-school teacher — one of those incomparable people who impose order, compassion and even humor on the chaotic, snarled intersections of adolescence.” — The New York Times Book Review 8/18/15
  • “A refreshing, practical book for parents who want to raise resilient kids but aren’t sure how to start.” —Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way
