Preview: Mindset: The New Psychology of Success is the end result of decades of research by Stanford University professor and psychologist Carol S. Dweck. In the book, Dweck argues that a person's mindset, that is, how they view their own abilities and approach challenges, is the primary predictor of one's success. Dweck classifies "mindset" as a simple binary: although there is a middle ground, you either have a predominant fixed mindset or a predominant growth mindset. The fixed mindset is the belief that one's qualities and abilities are immutable and cannot be changed. In contrast, the growth mindset is the idea that a person can improve their intelligence and talents through hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
