200 pages of waffle, 40 pages of unactionable tools!,
While I really value the research behind this book, I found it lacking in content. The first 200 pages hammer home the two mindsets Carol has some up with time and time and time again. Not adding a massively amount of new value each time. Hoping the last 40 pages or so would be the tools to help do this, they were all high level things which I didn't feel to be actionable and sounded like a plug for her computer based learning.
I'm a NLP Practitioner Coach and to me I could summarise it as the Presuppositions, There's no failure only feedback, and, If one person can do something, anyone can. Link that will wellformed outcomes and some future pacing and you have the book in a nutshell.

Can you recommend a book of this sort? I've not read many of this genre, a beginner really. Thank you

I think you'd be better off with Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us It's a wider context, covers more research (including Dweck) and I think has more value.
