Not as good as I'd hoped,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential (Paperback)
As an admirer of Dweck's academic work, I had hoped for more from this book. However be warned that this is an attempt to write a populist version of "Self Theories", which is excellent. I think it would be fair to say that Dweck is more interesting when writing as an academic researcher. There is really nothing new in this text and the style is grating at times. The ideas are as fascinating as you would expect but if you've read "Self Theories" you don't really need to read this one.

Yes, because the content is still interesting so was intending the 4 stars as a recommendation to read for those not too familiar with Dweck's work... Didn't mean to cause any confusion - apologies if I did!
