Product description

Review

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. A great book is one whose advice you follow. 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. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Education and Psychology at Yale University.)

If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset. (Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start.)

Book Description

An authoritative, practical guide on how to develop the mindset necessary for success, both personal and professional.

I loved this book. This is one of those rare pieces of work which really got me thinking, and made me look at life in a new way. Carol Dweck's theory that most of us are controlled by either a "fixed" or "growth" mindset, and that our mindsets make a huge difference to how we succeed in life is intriguing. The reason that I've only given it four stars is because it's in my opinion a poorly written book. Perhaps Dweck should have hired a good ghost writer.

There were a few things which I disagreed with her about, the main one being her criticism of the tennis player John McEnroe. You don't get to the very pinnacle of your sport without having a growth mindset. As a person McEnroe was always a little bit damaged, but his development as a tennis player showed all the characteristics of the growth mindset: he worked hard at eliminating his deficiencies.

The part of this book which really made me really think was when Dweck discusses the labels which are put on people, especially children. She believes that it's just as wrong to label a child "intelligent" as it is to call him "stupid". According to Dweck the former label can cause a child to refuse to face challenges because doing so could blemish the "perfect" label which has been placed upon him. And I found myself laughing at her explanation of why Enron failed: the fixed-mindset arrogance of a business's senior managers was something which I've experienced in my working life too.

This is book which everybody should read: it made a massive impression on me.

I was disappointed with this book - the idea of mindset change is not new and I didn't feel that this offered much in "break-though" thinking. If anything, I felt the book was a too much "me, me, me", "aren't I great to have imparted this concept to my students" and very repetitive. I guess there's some quite interesting studies, but they are covered in a superficial way, so you don't get much from them. I wouldn't recommend this book.

A must read for anyone raising children. Also a brilliant read if you're one of the adults who was always told how smart you were as a child - and found that crippling. Eg intelligence = doing well all the time.

Dweck is an advocate of praising effort, not ability.

Massively recommend this book. Really opened my mind to how I'm thinking and how I might be able to improve how I view things.

As a sports coach this really opened me up to the idea that one can never stop improving. Great mindset to have as a coach as it is something that players must have to develop.

A well-written and well-argued book. Some of the examples from public life reflect the time in which the book was written and the author's nationality.

I would recommend this book because it has been one of the most helpful conceptual frameworks to challenge unhelpful views about what is or isn't possible in order to effect healthy and productive change. Personally very valuable to me.
