Authors on Audio: A Conversation with Paul Tough

Inspired, in part, by his bestselling How Children Succeed, Paul Tough’s new book, The Years That Matter Most: How College Makes Or Breaks Us, explores the pivotal period when young people enter the world of higher learning. Forbes calls the work “a comprehensive, moving account of the inequalities that block many poor, minority, and first-generation students from realizing the benefits of a college education.” Tough recently discussed The Years That Matter Most with WYPL guest host Blake McVey.
