Original book summary overview: Ever wondered why NBA star Kevin Durant said, "Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard?" He is a believer in the notion that relying on just talent for success is a fallacy. In this book, Annie Brock and Heather Hundley draw inspiration from Carol Dweck’s publication on mindset. They take readers through twelve inspiring chapters on how to conceptualize growth mindset and how it changes the way one can teach and the way students learn. They give practical steps on how to cultivate it and use several renowned personalities such as Albert Einstein, Michael Jordan, and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to paint a picture of the growth mindset.
Please note: This is a summary, analysis, and review of the book and not the original book. It is meant as a supplement to not a replacement for The Growth Mindset Coach.
