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.
In this brilliant book, Dweck shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we approach our goals. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are far less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed through hard work, good strategies, and mentorship. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

The beauty of this book is in its simplicity. The importance for our happiness, success and that of our kids can not be underestimated. A hugely influential book based on thorough research. Every parent, teacher and coach should read this and everybody interested in self improvement as well!
Excellent book. Information that should be intuitive, but is strikingly easy to forget. Mandatory reading for all educators, coaches and parents. Also great insight for employers, managers or team leaders. I highly recommend this book.
Narrator's dramatic rendering drops a star
A high impact book that has changed the way i approach all challenges and greatly influenced how i parent my children, especially during times of adversity. The narrator's voice is comically over-dramatic and (likely) self aggrandizing Were it not for the strain required to focus on the critical messages of this important book thru the hamming of the reader, I would give it 5 stars.
