Exactly what I needed to hear. This book and its concepts are empowering yet honest. I treated success, and therefore failure, as identities since I was at least five years old, and I've been suffering in a squalor of safety for most of that time. This book describes the mindset of growth in a way that makes it very easy to absorb and appreciate. A lot of examples of real people with fixed and growth ideals are used throughout, which I found really helped. I will be listening through again.
This is a piece of literature everyone should enjoy! I highly recommend this book. There is life-changing information in mindset. I think you can change careers, relationships and thinking
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.
