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)

    "A lil too long, but massage is good"

    May be shorter, but the last part, was all about examples, so it will be absorbed by you better. Overall I liked it.

    "Horrible"

    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

    "Good points but could be punchier"

    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

    "The message is good but..."

    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.

    "Great Reminders"

    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.

    "Mindset shift"

    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.
