Publisher's Summary

Now updated with new research - the book that has changed millions of lives makes a perfect graduation gift.
After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck PhD discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she 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.
In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love - to transform their lives and your own.

Was expecting more...

Ok. But is really repetitive - anecdote after anecdotes. And then repeated anecdotes. Was expecting more insight on how to become more growth minded.

Meaningful well written book - great examples

I liked the relevant examples that went with the narrative. I found it very purposeful to explore the fixed and growth mindset in regards to oneself and raising children especially! Not to mention for coaches, teachers and any
