Reviews

Giving Kids a Fair Chance is remarkable for the scientific advances that it represents, in good part due to Heckman and his co-authors.... The book stands out among economic studies in its attention to noncognitive skills, 'including strength of motivation, an ability to act on long-term plans, and the socioemotional regulation needed to work with others' or 'character.'
