Love the book. I was a fixed mindset and I did always blame my husband for our arguments, only to find out how much of our issues were my own. I owe him so many I'm sorry. The book was a wonderful eye opener. I can say thank you for such a wonderful book.
This is a true gem. It's the first time I can honestly say that this book can benefit anyone. Whether you're already growth minded and need a reminder or need a more growth minded outlook in a different aspect of your life. Or if you aren't the person you want or think you can be. Adopt the growth mindset. You'll be glad you did!
Maybe just a personal preference but I had a hard time stomaching the narrator; her impression of any male quote was aggravating and broke the rhythm due to its theatrical quality. I finished the book but really wish the narrator had been different.
We've all heard the message: if you change your thinking, you really can change your life. In Mind Set, Dr Dweck offers not only studies that prove the hypotheses, but more importantly, practical steps for cultivating a growth mind set. This is one of those books that should be required reading in the school of life.
Awesome book! As a parent and coach I appreciate the different approaches to working with kids. I had no idea there was good and bad praise. I am going to improve my growth mindset.
I loved the book, lots of useful information. The author explained everything in detail and gave good examples. The only drawback I found was the narrator's rate of speed. At the beginning I even thought it was slightly fast-forwarded. It felt like she was in a rush to read the book as fast as possible. Eventually, I got used to her performance, but when I sent the book to my sister, she said she couldn't listen to it as it felt overly upbeat and rushed.
I couldn't finish listening to the book. I'm going to read the print version instead. This was a waste of a credit. I found the cadence and tone of the narrator's voice insufferable. The inflections were odd and it sounded like it was being read with a big, fake, cheery smile. It reminded me of the enthusiastic happy voices of mattress and furniture commercials.
I wish I would have read this years ago. it's clear I've been guilty of the fixed mindset and all the problems that go with it. This book makes me more excited for the future.
