I approached this book with some skepticism, but once I got into it, that quicky disappeared. I would go so far as to say it is very easy now to spot fixed mindset in some of the negative reviews that were made about this book: I am just working on becoming more growth mindset and finding the ways I am fixed and changing them. Not letting your mistakes and shortcomings define you is extremely important! Learning that everything is potentially a learning experience, failures just suddenly fall away and there is nothing but learning. You will no longer run away from challenges, and you will seek out feedback as a means to improve. This book is Highly recommended!
while the book offers some great insight and comparisons into the fixed and growth mindsets. It was overly saturated with story after story (mostly of sports stars and coaches) and quotes by them. With me not being a sports guy, it was often hard to follow and I found myself tempted to fast forward or skip a chapter because I understood the point trying to be made a long time ago at the beginning of the chapter. great concept but I highly recommend the abridged version.
Great message and lots of helpful information, but WAY too many sports references. Perhaps a list of further readings would be better than spending so much time on all the different athletes. Message received after the first few.
I heard a lot of really positive reviews for this book. My take: I feel like her points could have easily and accurately been made in 5-10 pages. Good points, but the horse was dead a LONG time ago.
I am fond of reading books that combine anecdotes, studies, and tips & tricks for self-improvement. This book has all three, is well written, and for everyone and anyone to read. I am going to tell all of my co-workers, family, and friends to read Mindset.
