Publisher Description

The updated edition of the bestselling book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset

“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


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.

I thought I already knew (Fixed mindset?)

I thought I already knew the lessons of “Growth” vs. “Fixed” mindsets. (I’ve had a sign on my work computer for years!).

But, Dr. Dweck’s examples made this book life-changing!

I’m so grateful for this book!

Terrible Robot Narrator

Difficult to listen to.

This voice

Is this a robot or a human reading? I can’t bear to listen to this voice. Is there another version of the book with a human narrator?
