This is for a person who over heard the word MINDSET a conversation or from a lecturer, for the very first time! ... as has no idea what MINDSET is... For everybody else, there are 1,000's of other books to read first.
Just reminded me that just because there are 1,000 reviews, doesn't mean it's current or relevant.
She is fine.. Especially at 3X the speed.
Awesome! I couldn't stop listening. When I was done listening, I bought many hardcopies of this book and gave them away to friends. Just buy it! The price you pay outweights the value it has in your personal journey of growth in many many folds.
the title of course.
Absolutely! There were so many examples in the books that makes the ideas very convincing and I am able to relate to.
It is a book that needs to be kept in your library and read many times over.
I am an eye doctor who loves to read about the brain and brain research. I enjoy a good novel or series from time to time also!
The immediate usability of this knowledge was wonderful. I work with children daily, and by changing a few words, we can actually see changes in how they respond to us in the office. Such a powerful book! Great for parents, teachers, and anyone that works with children.
Yes, I will. Some good tidbits
Learning that a fixed mindset is something that one can overcome.
That I can now look at my reaction to "precieved" limitations in a new way.

Delves into the difference between a fixed and a learning mindset. A know it all versus an always looking for opportunities to learn and improve. Naturals don't learn to work hard. Michael Jordan was cut from varsity team in high school. Turned down by first college choice but he had a legendary training routine. Fixed mind sets believe in fate and don't strive for continuous improvement. They act as if the world owes them something and continuously find fault in others for their short comings.
I wonder how you know that Iacoca is fixed-mindset person , do you personally know him ? You can't point to a failing organisation and say that its leader has a fixed mindset.

I liked both...
This is one of the best books I read. I give it to a lot of clients, and reference it in my speaking.
I like the fact that she speaks quickly and adds some energy!

This book talks about 2 different mindsets: growth mind-sets and fixed mind-sets. You can be either in different parts of your life. The book gives you plenty of examples of the 2 kinds and helps you figure out where you are on the scale. In doing so, it gives you practical tips and ways on how you can change your mindset. This can be applied to parenting, business, relationships, etc. I mainly got this for parenting my young school age children, but i was pleasantly surprised at how useful it was in applying it to other aspects of my life. It is more than just telling your kids to be great. I would combine this book with the 5 Love Languages for Kids, and it would round out how I'd like to parent them in this current stage of development. I didn't particularly like the narration, but eventually i got used to it, and it was okay. The content of the book more than made up for it. I hope this helps. I highly recommend it.

This book is about a single idea: there are two basic midsets, one establishes we have a fixed set of abilities that limits our performance in life, another one that ability is acquired and we can get better if we keep learning. The consequences are huge: telling a kid he is inherently dumb (or smart) is very dangerous - we should assess effort and focus, not judge someone's intelligence as something that is set forever.
I think the author could have made the argument in 30 minutes, maybe an hour. The rest of the audiobook is made of example after example that reiterates the same concept over and over. Aside from the section on educating kids, I think all this is unnecessary.
Still, it is a good book and a hugely important concept. The key learnings from this book should be mandatory training for any parent or leader.
Yes. An entirely new way to view learning.
You are not dumb. You just haven't learned about it yet!
