Publisher's Summary

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 relationships, and how we raise our kids, ultimately predicting whether or not we will fulfill our potential. Dweck has found that everyone has one of two basic mindsets.If you have the fixed mindset, you believe that your talents and abilities are set in stone - either you have them or you don't. You must prove yourself over and over, trying to look smart and talented at all costs. This is the path of stagnation. If you have a growth mindset, however, you know that talents can be developed and that great abilities are built over time. This is the path of opportunity - and success.

Dweck demonstrates that mindset unfolds in childhood and adulthood and drives every aspect of our lives, from work to sports, from relationships to parenting. She reveals how creative geniuses in all fields - music, literature, science, sports, business - apply the growth mindset to achieve results. Perhaps even more important, she shows us how we can change our mindset at any stage of life to achieve true success and fulfillment. She looks across a broad range of applications and helps parents, teachers, coaches, and executives see how they can promote the growth mindset. Highly engaging and very practical, Mindset breaks new ground as it leads you to change how you feel about yourself and your future.

What the Critics Say

"A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. I have found Carol Dweck's work on mindsets invaluable in my own life, and even life-changing in my attitudes toward the challenges that, over the years, become more demanding rather than less. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine." (Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Education and Psychology at Yale University, director of the PACE Center of Yale University, and author of Successful Intelligence)

    "repetitive but enjoyable"

    though material is very interesting and informative at times it is a bit repetitive (for an audible) narration saves it from being a snoozer.

    Carol Dwek is an interesting Psychologist going over how we can all improve our mindsets to follow outlr dreams. My favorite part about this book is that she uses many examples of growth - mindset people, and it's easy to understand.

    "One of the best books I've ever experienced"

    This book is truly a must read for everyone. I work full time in athletics and I've already recommended this book to every staff, director, and member of our organization. It's also great for business, parenting, and life in general.

    "Too fast"

    In my opinion, this sounds best at .75 speed. It sounds unnaturally fast at normal speed.

    "Phenomenal"

    Terrific book -- this explains some of what I think I already knew, but then opened up so much more understanding about the capacity for growth -- at any stage in life. Amazing. Read this book no matter where you are in your life.

    "Brilliant!"

    I LOVE the idea of having a growth mindset. 

    Revolutionary. Reading this book was like turning a light switch on. We aren't the sum of our intelligence and talent, these are just the starting points. Through dedication and hard work we are always growing, learning, and evolving.

    Fixed mindset: This is just how I am

    Growth mindset: I can learn and grow and become anything I want. 

    Great stuff!

    "Essential for everyone"

    Before listening to Dr. Dweck's book, Mindset, I had read and heard about the growth mindset. Dr. Dweck's book provides clear insight into parenting, teaching, relationships and business with a growth mindset. This is an eye-opener and life changer!

    "Life changing is an understatement"

    This book was required reading for my job, and I am so thankful!! I really enjoyed this book - every chapter was so meaty that I feel I need to read it again. I even shared it with my husband in snatches as we took a trip and recommended it to my other colleagues. Worth reading for sure! I don't know how to get more people to read it, but I feel anyone could benefit from this.
