I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations were interesting and something everyone could relate to. I feel I can really apply the concept of growth or fixed learner in almost every aspect of my life. It isn't a totally new concept but is a scientific basis to the old maxim of 'if at first you don't succeed, try try again'. Attitude is everything!
The concept. I agree with the ideas behind the book and love hearing about it.
Holy crap we get it. Some guy was fixed mindset and bad and another guy was growth and good. Enough. 4-5 examples are plenty. Not 1000 of the same. And maybe deal with some grey a bit - everything is written as this or that.
Plain. Plain. Plain.
Wonderful paradigm about growth mindset and some useful gems scattered in what felt like a belabouring attempt to advertise why the growth mindset works.
Growth Mindset might be the single most powerful idea. But I wish the author would update by removing Alex Rodriguez from her story.
Loved this book. It's good to revisit every so often to keep the concept fresh.
This so simple yet clearly a game changer approach to life's lessons. I wish I could go back in time and re- learn from day one for myself and my kids.
I really want to adopt this thinking.
I wish there was more on how to substitute growth for fixed mindset.
How to consistently change and apply the shift. The examples of why was 7 chapters but only half of the 8th was on how to change.
I get it now I want 8 chapters on how to change.
