Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
by Carol S. Dweck
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Really informative, 17 Aug 2010
A very simple message on how you approach things and the massive effect it has on you. At times the book isn't written as fluidly as possible but the message is a great one. Have already passed it on to friends and colleagues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book of the year, 29 Jun 2010
After watching his talk at the Ted conference I knew I wanted to read his book. It's changed quite a lot about how I run my business, now that I know the "why" - decisions are clearer and easier for me now.

It also provides a great framework for explaining things to people and helping them understand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Superfiicial, 5 Jan 2004
Fences and Windows, as Naomi Klein states, is not a sequel to "No Logo". Rather, it is a collection of speeches and articles compiled by her over the last few years.
Therein lies the problem with this book. For someone wanting a thorough insight into the trends of the 'globalisation debate' this book offers very very little subject matter. Considering how all the writings are magazine articles subjects are covered with very little depth, and no real insight or analysis.
I found the book tedious after a while and repetitive, as many of the articles overlap. Also, since the articles are not in chronological order throughout, you find yourself revisiting the same summits and debates, with no additional information/understanding.
A much better insight, in my opinion, would be Paul Kingsnorth's "One No, Many Yeses". This book truly offered and original and objective approach to the movement.
