"In a time of increased anxiety and helicopter parenting, Wojcicki's advice on helping your child lead seems to speak for itself. A must-read for parents of children of all ages."--Library Journal, STARRED review "Wojcicki believes that if there's a secret to raising self-motivated, empowered kids, it's embodied in the following values: trust, respect, independence, collaboration, and kindness. Striking a conversational but thoughtful tone, she urges parents to reflect on their own childhoods in order to realize that "sometimes a child has a different dream, a different path to follow" than their parents."--Publishers Weekly "Written with honesty, heart, and a great deal of experience, How toRaise Successful People is a must-read for all parents." -- Melissa Norstedt, STARRED review, Booklist "[Wojcicki] compiles her knowledge into an accessible guidebook for parents, teachers, and others involved in nurturing a child's or adolescent's development...[with] simple, down-to-earth techniques to help shape children into responsible, independent, kind individuals with the capabilities to become successful at whatever endeavor they may try."-- Kirkus Reviews "Parenting in our digital age is a brave new frontier, fraught for both parents and children. But as Esther Wojcicki--beloved teacher, parent, and writer whose work I've long admired--shows, modern parenting can be a joy instead of a constant struggle. Esther Wojcicki is leading a revolution not only in how we prepare our children to succeed, but how we nurture the health and well-being of parents across the world. How to Raise Successful People shows us how to be our best so our children can be their best." --Arianna Huffington, founder of Thrive Global and Huffington Post, bestselling author of On Becoming Fearless and The Sleep Revolution "Every industry is clamoring for more innovators, more creative leaders who can solve problems with intelligence and a strong sense of social responsibility. Esther Wojcicki knows exactly how to instill these values in our children. We need her insights now more than ever." --Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, bestselling author of Behind the Cloud "As a teacher, Esther Wojcicki was brave enough to challenge conventional teaching, understanding that students need to be active participants in their own learning. As a parent, she innately understood how to foster responsibility, self-reliance, and fearless creativity in her daughters. Esther's mix of practical wisdom and inspiration will be a prized resource for anyone raising the next generation to live with purpose and unlimited potential." --Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of Emerson Collective, wife of Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple "There is nothing more important than raising and educating our kids and doing it well. Esther Wojcicki is a revolutionary educator and mother who understands what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur, a leader in technology, or any kind of professional in the new economy. Her many students and three talented daughters are living proof that her method works. This book will change the conversation about how to parent in the digital age." --Peter Diamandis, New York Times bestselling co-author of Abundance: --
