Publisher Description

From the renowned psychologist who introduced the world to “growth mindset” comes this updated edition of the million-copy bestseller—featuring transformative insights into redefining success, building lifelong resilience, and supercharging self-improvement.

“Through clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates how our beliefs about our capabilities exert tremendous influence on how we learn and which paths we take in life.”—Bill Gates, GatesNotes


“It’s not always the people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest.”

After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.

Great content, terrible writer

Ms. Dweck happily admits at the outset that she chose a questionable writing style. She's not kidding. This book would benefit from some heavy editing. The information and insight she imparts is profoundly useful and important. I just couldn't get past the impulse to think she's pulling a lot of her anecdotes out of her imagination because she staunchly refuses to provide citations. She also often speaks of individuals who are researchers or teachers etc. but can't be bothered to say where they're from or how they received their bona fides. Ultimately for me this book is very useful but I find I'm forcing myself to accept that the research she cites is real because she offers no evidence.

Life changing

The beauty of this book is in its simplicity. The importance for our happiness, success and that of our kids can not be underestimated. A hugely influential book based on thorough research. Every parent, teacher and coach should read this and everybody interested in self improvement as well!
