This book takes CBT to another level, focusing on positive psychology rather than the typical pathological perspective. It is a simple idea that can be used to deal with complex issues.
I truly enjoyed the Dr. Dweck's research and application of growth mind set strategies. There were a number of examples for each mindset that allowed me as a reader to assess where I currently am and how far I have come while still comforting me about how much more I can grow!
Before reading this book I thought it would just be a good refreshment of things I knew about having a growth mindset. To my delight it did much more. The shared knowledge in this book filled in many gaps I never knew was there.
It's a well written book and very well narrated. Will buy the physical version of it too, to pass forward to my son someday.
Used similar approach myself and liked the way it's explained in a book. There are many examples and a well written "workshop" gives practical hints. Should be very convincing and helpful, especially to young parents and teachers. Highly recommend.
Good subject and enjoyable for the most part. Almost gave up on it because the narrator wasn't my favorite but was worth the listen for sure. My best suggestion would be to listen at 1.25 speed which improved the narration for me.
Really wonderful material. Very practical and consumable. The negative view the author has towards talent is concerning. I understood the need to not lean on talent and importantly not lean on the concept of "natural intelligence" however people are different. Some people are born runners some are not. Can hard work help with either? Yes but return on investment will differ. Neuroscience clearly shows how our brains differ in subtle ways, not least of which a product of our continued evolution. Intelligence itself can be affected our ability to bud neural pathways. Which can differ from person to person. The depreciation of talent ironically leaves out the growth and change represented by evolution. But again a very good substantiated piece for the case of growth thinking that we can all benefit from. I look forwards to her future work as it moves to build on this topic and address the topic of talent more fully. The performance was not to my liking. The reader sounded bossy. She was good as modulating tone for the third person pieces but in general I found her style irritating.
Very well written and researched. Carol hours over every aspect of life and how to become a better you through developing your growth mindset. Thank you Carol Dweck!
I enjoy Reading/hearing novels, Management books, and books around how to trigger innovation
Don' miss this Book. You will find ways in which you can grow and also help others grow
