This did not have to be a whole book, most of the material is anecdotal which the author repeats ad nauseum. The name of the title implied there was more to the book, after the first chapter the difference between the two mindsets is pretty clear, there rest is just more of the same.
I liked it, but it would be nice if they have a pdf file that they could give so it would be easier to follow and there are certain key points about the book I would like to have handy.
hahahaha a movie of this book?

Mindset spends a lot of time trying to prove to us its point. Success is self driven and self infected. Does it succeed into that? yes 100%. good read.
I learned about myself. It reminded me of some of the negative things that I've done or said and showed me how others might interpret my actions. Plus, it is a model for positive thinking. I like that it was at least realistic enough to explain that we can't win all the time. But if you practice you will become better.
Sure. She had a pleasant voice.
Not Applicable. However, if they had turned it into a comedy or made it an adventure of how to act and react then, yeah, I'd Redbox it.
I love books that helps me grow.
I really enjoyed it. There were some very interesting points that were made. But I felt like the book could've been cut down a third. I feel like there's a lot of repetition throughout the book.
observe, learn, improve
that it made me see things from a new perspective and I now know how to promote a growth mindset to my child.

Start to think and see in the Growth Mindset.
I feel that it has changed my life in the way that i see things in a new way. It will change your life too specially if you have children.
There were too many in depth sports analogies. I was unable to focus on the topic any longer chapter 4. I became distracted to the point of not caring about the subject matter for the irritation with the context of explanation. The cursory examples using former tennis pro, John M. and former baseball player/manager, Billy Bean, were done well and got the point across. However, the author continued on into the intricacies of baseball, basketball, golf, along with various prominent teams and players, historical and more recent. I understand the need to make the material accessible to a wide audience. For me the book became an historical perspective on the variables involved in what it takes to be a successful athlete and/or athletic team. I would have appreciated a more concise presentation, and less repetition. The repetition would have even been worth it if the context for explanation was anything other than sports.
This is my second audiobook on Audible. Both have been great and I will continue using this service.
Mindset is a non-fiction, self-help book. As a past teacher and present therapist, I can definitely see how my students/clients/self can be influenced by either a fixed or growth mindset. Definitely an interesting book.
Yes it was quite insightful
Helped to explain why we do the things we do. It helped me to understand why I have done some of the things I have.
Don't have a suggestion for someone else , but my initial reaction to her reading style was not good. Her cadence was much too fast for me in the beginning and her tone was a little different. Not bad...but different. The combination of her quick pace and tone concerned me at first...but I got used to it.
the many examples of famous people we all know was very enlightening
