I highly recommend this book. Actually, I prescribe it.

This book served as a catalyst which helped me figure out and implement the things I want to do with my life. The theories and principles presented in this book are really helpful. They not only help to figure out the priorities in one's own life, but how to commit and actualise these priorities.

I read this book because I have been thinking about my purposes, missions, and goals with regard to meaningful work and meaningful relationships. This was the easy part relative to the other things that need to be done. I agree with John Doerr's mantra, "Ideas are easy. Execution is everything." Now I am committed to allocating the resources to my priorities and implementing the best processes that I know to deliver these priorities.

All things considered, this book has been a revelation. Mr Christensen can add to the measure of his life the profound impact that he has had on my life and the impact on those around me as I share the book and it's valuable ideas.

I am glad that I finished this book. I have a better grasp and understanding of the significance of habits. this is quite empowering because I have the tools to understand my own habits and those of others. where i am concerned, I am in a better position to manage my own habits and to manage counterproductive behaviour. I can also use this information to try to support other people that I come across to appreciate the significance of habits and how to approach acquiring better habits.

We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

This book has added value to my life. I really appreciate it.

The human condition has been around for centuries. Despite all the progress humanity has made, the average human has not gotten much better at relating to the human condition. Books like the can help a person to approach life in different manner that is likely to produce better results for the individual and their community.

Perhaps a future revision of this book might become a timeless classic like the works of the Stoics.

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.

This book should be prescribed for everybody in the entire world. The principles should become common knowledge.
The principles can change lives and save lives.
Thank you for publishing these ideas and principles.
Now my challenge is to apply them consistently.
