Overcoming the Odds looks closely at the lives of an ethnically diverse group of 505 men and women who were born .

Overcoming the Odds looks closely at the lives of an ethnically diverse group of 505 men and women who were born in 1955 on the Hawaiian island of Kauai and who have been monitored from the prenatal period through early adulthood by psychologists, pediatricians, public health professionals, and social workers. Werner and Smith trace the impact of a variety of biological and psycho-social risk factors and stressful events on the development of these individuals, most of whose parents did not graduate from high school and worked as semiskilled or unskilled laborers.

Overcoming the Odds looks closely at the lives of an ethnically diverse group of 505 men and women who were born .

The subjects were studied at intervals from birth to age 31-32. By the end of that time, most were in full-time employment, were satisfied with their work, and had reached an occupational level above that of their parents. More women than men relied on people for their emotional support, and more men than women were concerned with their careers. They were considered to be "ordinary people" who lived "ordinary lives.

The Kauai Longitudinal Study monitored the impact of a variety of biological and psychosocial risk factors, stressful life events, and protective factors on the development of these individuals from a mixture of ethnic groups (primarily Japanese, Hawaiian, and Pilipino).

Overcoming the Odds looks closely at the lives of an ethnically diverse group of 505 men and women who were born in 1955 on the Hawaiian island of Kauai and who have been monitored from the prenatal period through early adulthood by psychologists, pediatricians, public health professionals, and social workers. Werner and Smith trace the impact of a variety of biological and psycho-social risk factors and stressful events on the development of these individuals, most of whose parents did not graduate from high school and worked as semiskilled or unskilled laborers. Incorporating vivid case study accounts with statistical analysis, the authors focus on both the vulnerability and the resilience of those who overcame great odds to grow into competent and caring adults. They trace the recovery process through which most of the troubled adolescents in the cohort―those with histories of delinquency, teenage pregnancy, and mental health problems―emerged with improved prospects in their twenties and early thirties. Identifying both the self-righting tendencies that enable high risk children later to adapt successfully to work, marriage, and parenthood, and the conditions under which professional and volunteer care is most beneficial, Werner and Smith offer concrete suggestions for effective intervention policies.

This book is excellent as a source for charting the different phases of development. It is very import to understand that the data and history is unique, of which the author has documented wisely.

The Kauai study of children born in 1955 is famous. These investigators bring to life the enormous amount of data that they have gathered, since that time. They also propose changes in the way we raise our children, based on their data.
