Dr Carol Dweck


In this Book author shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

My opinion

This was an interesting read that goes deep to very specific part of human psyche and how environment shapes it. Basic message is that no matter how talented you are, it doesn’t help if you are not willing to put in the hard work.

For who?

This is for people who need some motivation to get stuff done.
