Why this book?
Carol Dweck's research helps explain why some people are more willing to explore curiosity based on the impact interaction with others has had on them.
I loved this book because she reveals what parents, teachers, and others inadvertently say or do, that impacts whether we have an open/growth or closed/fixed mindset.
