An utterly compelling story of how the way we think shapes our success.Essential reading for anyone with aspirations. - Matthew Syed, author of Bounce and two-time Olympic athlete Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation. - Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock A good book is one whose advice you believe.

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.

I'd particularly recommend to anyone who has issues with self worth, or does not feel they are fulfilling their potential, but I think anyone could find something useful in it.
The research behind the author's findings is explained and is fascinating in itself. A self help book for those who don't want anything New Agey.
Or try and make a difference. In your work life, your personal life, how you deal with colleagues, your friends, family and your children. This book is not a "tickbox" or a "top ten things you need to do" and the reason for this, is that the change has to come from within you. This book purley is a catalyst to empower you to make that change. I've purchased a copy for all my friends for Christmas.
It's not one of these type of ultra positive books that leads you on to part with your money. Carol Dweck's book is grounded in solid psychology and insightful research. This book comes as a challenge which will leave you wanting to develop the growth mindset though you might have the typical British criticism to anything like this. Even Bill Gates has got this book down in his top five of 2015.
It will provide plenty of evidence on why you should make a subtle change to your approach.
The benefits will be well, well worth the price that you pay Amazon for this book.
I bought it as a soccer coach to help my with my player psychology, in reality it will probably be responsible for changing my psychology far more than theirs!
It’s a good book, but she never says what the Growth Mindset is crisp and clearly enough for me. She also is short on empirical evidence to back it up.
What she is heavy on is qualitative anecdotes and stories that she quotes verbatim from either sports or business people or her studies and it’s feedback that is long winded and after a while gets a bit boring.
It also takes a long time - till the end of the book - to go into depth, that you’re not one or the other, but a blend. Which one you are Can be determined by circumstance and triggers.
Could have been more concise, succinct and would have been more enjoyable for it.
