The content is excellent. Dr. Dweck's research is impeccable.
I didn't care for the narrator, she sounded almost mechanical.
The narrator sounds like a computer generated voice.
Change your mindset, change your life.
I enjoyed it so much that I bought a hard copy as a gift.
Say something about yourself!
This book is interesting overall, especially for those who may be struggling with a "why me" mind set. It outlines some of the differences in the way people with a positive attitude think as opposed to the way a more negative thinking person thinks. This information is helpful if you're someone who hasn't done a lot of work on yourself, but it tends to over-generalize in many respects. I think there should be a general caveat given that the information should be viewed as a starting point for self improvement. Unfortunately, the way the material is presented, one is left with the impression that this book is a complete, highly authoritative source for self improvement. The tone of the book is just a bit too "new age" for me. Personally, I feel that Napoleon Hill's book (among others) is a better source. Being a teacher I give it a "C".
Great info on the power, influence and contagiousness of our mindset! Valuable for individuals, families, leaders and organizations.
Author does a great job netting together key life scenarios to learn how to apply a growth mindset for a much better outcome.
Would saying the book is challenging indicate that I tend towards a growth mindset? I am certain that I am more capable of identifying situations when I display the growth or fixed mindset, and this gives me hope that I can continue to grow.
Other mindset books I attempted read but never could finish due to them feeling like a therapy session. I'm a thinker and this book gave solid reasoning behind the suggestions not just a process to follow. Good advise for parenting and work. Not a lot of ah ha moments, but did strengthen my current knowledge.
Ugh, the same word "mindset" is repeated every other word or maybe every other 3rd word without any good advice or help...just a self indulged author who blabbers on but doesn't seem to have anything to say...almost like she's just trying to fill space...wish I had never bought it...seriously, not worth the money
Really like the depth of examples
The structure was not clear nor concise
Also as a non American listener I could not really relate to the references to sporting or entertainment heros as much
