A lot of anecdotes. The main points could have been brought across much quicker. It was more a validation of the authors research than a structured presentation of the research and concrete steps to take to change your mindset.
well written. Gave ways to incorporate what I was learning into practice. pointed out pitfalls to success. I learned better ways to help my children and myself!
it's a great book on mindset and uses lots of different real life examples from all sorts of age groups and types of people on how growth and fixed mindsets affect them. highly recommend!
would like to listen it again, so to absorb the idea
Understand human relation need to be maintained from time to time, not perfect or none miracle.
about "things and skills can be changed and should be maintained from time to time". it's related to Buddhism's idea of "Anicca", perfect is Idea, all the phenomenon will change and can be changed, so we should put effort and maintain the what we want to maintain.
Dweck is on to something and this book is very useful. I'd highly recommend it for teachers and parents. Everyone should work towards a growth mindset and spot when we aren't in it.
On the downside I think she's cramming too many traits and beliefs into a simplified world. I think she confuses grit, an equally admirable characteristic, with her growth mindset.
I'd also take her history lessons with a grain of salt. Edison wasn't any kind of team player but she bends history to make points. That's a slippery disservice to her readers.
I guess you're only aloud one point in a book like this but there are more than two characteristics at play in the hearts and minds of mankind.
I'd highly recommend the book.
