'Grit' book discussion

The Butali House Book Club will meet to engage, debate and critique the selected non-fiction book for the month. This March, they will be discussing Grit: Why Passion and Resilience are the Secrets to Success by Angela Duckworth.

In this instant New York Times bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.”

Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research, Angela explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success.

Angela has found that grit—a combination of passion and perseverance for a singularly important goal—is the hallmark of high achievers in every domain. She’s also found scientific evidence that grit can grow.

Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that—not talent or luck—makes all the difference.

Started in 2016, Butali House is a self-publishing and book marketing company that gives everyone the opportunity to create, produce, and sell the book of their dreams. Chilu Mulundu was an editor looking for a project to work on, and Peter Nawa was a writer with aspirations to be published. Together they released Peter's book Hired: Find the Job, Keep the Job, and Quit the Job, and that was the beginning of Butali House. The publishing house has a book club that meets every month to discuss a selected book.
