Dr Boyce explains the powerful, positive and groundbreaking research into the difference between those who succeed with ease and those who struggle to thrive.

Why do some people succeed and others struggle? Why are some people’s lives filled with satisfaction and happiness and others with frustration and despair? Why do some people die young, while others live into healthy old age? Is it simply chance and luck, or are there early patterns of development revealing potentially determinative pathways into bounty or calamity? In The Orchid and the Dandelion, Dr W. Thomas Boyce – one of the world’s foremost researchers in the field of paediatric health – presents findings that children have two very different responses to their environments. While some children are like dandelions and can thrive in almost any environment, there are others who, like orchids, are much more reactive and susceptible to their surroundings. Now we finally have a scientific framework to understand people and how to address their unique needs to help them find their fullest potential. This groundbreaking book draws on extensive research, examples and real stories that will re-frame how we think about orchid and dandelion children and the adults those children have become.

'... based on groundbreaking research that has the power to change the lives of countless children – and the adults who love them.'
