Mindset - Updated Edition Summary


Mindset - Updated Edition: Changing The Way You think To Fulfil Your Potential by Carol Dweck

World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea-the power of our mindset.

Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success-but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

Mindset - Updated Edition Reviews


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
