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.

"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)
Ugh, the same word "mindset" is repeated every other word or maybe every other 3rd word without any good advice or help...just a self indulged author who blabbers on but doesn't seem to have anything to say...almost like she's just trying to fill space...wish I had never bought it...seriously, not worth the money
Really like the depth of examples
The structure was not clear nor concise
Also as a non American listener I could not really relate to the references to sporting or entertainment heros as much
However the book tends to go on and on about the very basic principle introduced in the opening. It elaborates on it by showing different contexts or examples of how the mindset of fixed vs growth can be recognized and how to apply a growth mindset in those contexts. The book could have been half the length.
A little too much sports talk. I was hoping for more content for parenting or adjusting ourselves as adults with fixed mindset. I'll
go back and listen to the last 2 chapters again for the practical info.
This book allows you to understand how your mind affects everything about your life. The information held within is knowledge every man well benefit from.
This book clearly depicts the differences between a growth and fixed mindset. I loved all the different examples and strategies to shift your mindset.
It has many parenting examples and focuses a great part of the book on how to teach your child to have a growth mindset.
I cringed a couple of times when I related to a couple of examples. Great audio version.
