This book just became what everyone is getting for their birthday until everyone in my life has a copy.
The impact of this book cannot be overstated... The only negative thing I can say is that now I want more... I want to Growth. This book lets you see the Matrix.
Heard this book recommended by many thought leaders and influential people and I was not disappointed. The premise of the book is simple and easily understood and the concept is very thoroughly explained both with anecdotes and some research. I think the explanation of some of the anecdotes were a bit...convenient, but they ultimately illustrate the idea very well. Must read for everybody that wants to succeed in life.
The concept is wonderful! The message is exactly what I needed in my life. I'll be gifting this book to as many people as possibly can! I wasn't crazy about the narrator although she did an adequate job. My only complaint about the book itself was that I wish that the implementation section was longer with more of a concert action plan.
Carol describes a lifelong awareness and skill I desire to cultivate in myself and encourage in others,since I am a teacher. I recognize fixed mind sets in relatives, and can identify that as causes of hurting and broken relationships.
Margaret's voice matches the content of what she is reading, and is easy to listen to.
I am a middle school reading teacher who loves to show students the wonder and joy of reading.
It could have been much shorter. Every chapter seems to repeat itself.
The first few examples were worthwhile and then it got tiresome.
This book "disrupted" my thought life. It illuminated my mentality proclivities, and highlighted some danger zones in my thinking patterns. I would recommend this revolutionary read to anyone wishing to unlock personal understanding.
And like it. I just saved you $20.
Advice is good but I dislike blanket statements like "the Oakland A's almost won the World Series because of a growth mindset. " I read money ball. There was a heck of a lot more going on than positive mindset.
