repetitive. I couldn't make it past a few chapters which just seemed to say the same thing. there are other fascinating books on the same subject
Personally a very helpful book, but also gives me excellent strategies to use with my kids.
Book gives theory and practical examples to help you understand key concepts.
Examples where clear and numerous, concepts are simple and doable. Very practical knowledge. I believe everyone at some point in their life should listen to this book.
For those of you that think people can't improve (including yourself), this book is a good read. I really think this book would be best if it was cut in half and written for the 13 - 21 year old audience. It is that age when we are hardest on ourselves and this book can allow early adults to come to terms with failure and learn how to grow.
The biggest downside to this book is it is so focused on mindset that it fails to bring in other psychological areas that are just as relevant as mindset. Instead it hammers you over and over again with examples of positive and negative mindsets. While beneficial, the examples grow old towards the end of the book.
I bought Carol's book in kindle version from Amazon. Absolutely would never buy any audible narrated by Ms. Gavin, it sounds like her voice is computer generated.
I am just a Go-getter with passion to succeed in what I do best. I live to acheive the best out of life by reading smart intellectual folks so I can embrace some of their substance that they express with reason to express it.
all you get out of this book that people with Fixed mindset stay intune being just what they are doing like a postman delivered mail he does it til retirement same thing goes for firefighter,policeman,construction worker,a drug dealer or crook they all have a Fixed mindset because they continue doing what they do til they retire or die so they are enslave with their career or life style and when they retire all they worth is a watch or shout out they are congratulated for their time doing just that. The other part of mindset is the growth mindset where as people who take risk to be on top or design their own freedom to do what they want out of life. A common sense theory; people who push themselves are people who want a change in their life or surrounding; thats a growth mindset people dont need to read this book about some of the old information thats in this book. This book could have been good if she talk about the change redevelopment with someone success in today modern time talking about micheal jordan I can careless about him she talk about stories in her generation and before something you learned in school LOL!! LLS!!! this book is some GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!
Talk about people from 2000 til present time;
The narrator is not the issue; the book is out dated with old ideas and concept and action in today times you have to strategize differently to make a change; you are not getting that type of information to take it too the next level. This book is a COMPLETE JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the people that she involved in the book; she need people who making a change now and what make them excelled to the next level. She dont need my adviced she have all these degree's she should know this???? because she has all these degrees; My opinion is google her information then write a book about what she google about people LOL!!!!!LLS!!!!! come on go into deeper thought patter growth to sell a book; Good title but bad concept to make people understand MINDSET.
Stay ahead of the game interview people in today modern times who actually making a different you can interview CNN nominee's "Hero" and then go into the mindset change agenda. That should cost you because I am teaching for free to do research on Mindset and you have all these degrees.........dont try selling a book relating about yourself you giving out too much information about the book a writer is a mystery person too make people want to know more. You would like people to figure you out; too much info about the author for her first book. Desperate to sell A book
interesting perspective on many subjects, I would recomend this book for everone. Business and Parenting
Carol Dweck offered some good advice in her book. I liked her identification of "fixed minds" and "growth minds".
Despite being a educated woman she manages to slip in some gender biased white male bashing opinions in certain areas in his book. It really taints her and dilutes her professionalism.
