Mindset: The New Psychology of Success (Paperback)
From the Hardcover edition.
Dweck explains why its not just our abilities and talent that bring us successbut whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesnt 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 goalspersonal 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.
Praise for Mindset
Everyone should read this book.Chip and Dan Heath, authors of Switch andMade to Stick
Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation.Po Bronson, author ofNurtureShock
A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. I have found Carol Dwecks work on mindsets invaluable in my own life, and even life-changing in my attitudes toward the challenges that, over the years, become more demanding rather than less. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Education and Psychology at Yale University, director of the PACE Center of Yale University, and author ofSuccessful Intelligence
If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and readMindset.Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start and the blog How to Change the World
Highly recommended . . . an essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.Library Journal(starred review)
A serious, practical book. Dwecks overall assertion that rigid thinking benefits no one, least of all yourself, and that a change of mind is always possible, is welcome.Publishers Weekly
A wonderfully elegant idea . . . It is a great book.Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., author ofDelivered from Distraction

It is a great book that every parent should read one. I wish I had read the book when my kids were younger. I would have probably focused more on the effort than that on ability when they were been raised.Read More
