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.

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.
