    Mindset is one of those rare audio books that can help you make positive changes in your life and at the same time see the world in a new way. A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than 20 years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work, and ultimately predicts whether or not we will fulfull our potential.

    "Like a dentist appointment—painful but beneficial"
    Overall

    Good subject matter and information, but the over reliance on examples to explain concepts makes this book repetitive and verbous. Would suggest buying an abridged version if it's available. Overall, the insights I've gained from it have been valuable, although getting to them was a painfully long process—kind of like going to the dentist for a root canal.
