Paul Tough - The Years That Matter Most


How College Makes or Breaks Us, a Social Science Book Talk & Signing

Paul Tough is the bestselling author of Helping Children Succeed and How Children Succeed. He will discuss and sign The Years That Matter Most: How College Makes or Breaks Us ($28.00 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), a devastatingly powerful, mind-changing inquiry into higher education in the United States. This book tells the stories of students trying to find their way through the application process and into college.

With insight and passion, Tough takes readers on a journey from Ivy League seminar rooms to community college welding shops, from giant public flagship universities to tiny experimental storefront colleges. Whether you are facing your own decision about college or simply care about the American promise of social mobility, The Years That Matter Most will change the way you think--not just about higher education, but about the nation itself.
