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)

    Story
    "Fixed Mindset bad, Growth Mindset good. + details."

    Carol Dweck develops a simple and straightforward methodology to help people with motivation problems. she argues that a fixed mindset hinders you. causes you to remain fixed in place. unable to confront fears and challanges. while a growth mindset, allows you to enjoy and appreciate challange. using challange to grow into stronger and better people.

    a good book. but she has one.and only one point to make. if it helps to understand it in different contexts then read the whole book. there is never any part that is bad and uninformative. but she is just.driving home her one solution to all social problems.

    "Good but repetitive..."
    What did you love best about Mindset?

    I appreciated the way it challenged me to look at the mindset I operated out of.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The book was overloaded with case studies and stories that. It could have been slimmed down and the same point would have been made.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration did match the pace of the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is not a book I would to listen to in one sitting.

    "Excellent"

    A must read for all those who want to achieve more! I had a hard time at first with the narrators voice but used to speed to make work. After reading this book, you will look at everything differently

    "Must read for everyone"

    I always thought people's mindset was fixed forever but Carol did an incredible job proving otherwise.

    Easy to understand and very practical.

    "Must Read"

    One of my top books. This is a must-read for any parent coach, teacher manager or entrepreneur. Other books have talked about changing the way that you think to be successful, however this addressed working with your kids and employees to help you AND them grow

    "Listen and Grow for you and yours"

    This is a book with a powerful concept, assess and adjust your mindset. Dr. Dweck presents the concepts of the fixed and growth mindsets. She illustrates the explanation of each at work, in athletics, in the classroom, and at home with both child and spouse. Why I rate this book so high is it is understandable and she makes it extremely practical with clear actions and activities to move one towards a growth mindset. One of the most powerful points to me though it was a small section towards the end is how betrayal and hurt can move us back into a fixed mindset. This will be required reading in my leadership trainings. Thank you Dr. Dweck and I will put my best efforts into continuing to grow and help others grow too.
