Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. 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.

Just Ok

The narrators voice is not suited for this type of book - the narrator sounds like a yoga class instructor. Good thing it's short because you'd probably fall asleep. Next time I'll save my money and just purchase the book.

should improve the narrator -

great summary . had already attended a seminar about mindset so this was a bit of a repeat.
the least enjoyable part of the audio book was the robotic voice, tone and expression of the narrator.
sorry - but that totally put me off
