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.)
An authoritative, practical guide on how to develop the mindset necessary for success, both personal and professional.See all Product description

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.
Dweck is an advocate of praising effort, not ability.
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.
