Publisher Description

World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea-the power of our mindset.

Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success-but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

A chapter would have sufficed

Whilst insightful, much of the book is just repeating the same information in differing circumstances.

The free sample includes all the essential information, which is valid and useful. The rest of the book just regurgitates it in my opinion with no real-world application for the readers life. Essentially learn from your mistakes and grow, don’t shy away from challenge etc...

This book is a bit like when you need to write a set number of words for an essay and you just keep saying the same thing over and over…a bit like this review.
