Why did I love this book?
Mindset goes deep on a particular, but vital, aspect of success – the idea of growth mindset. Put simply: People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are far less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed through hard work. Based on her long career as a researcher and educator, Dweck clearly explains what a growth mindset is, why it matters and how we can cultivate our own. It’s a helpful guide for anyone who wants to shift how they think about their capabilities and intelligence, but most especially for anyone who is a parent. Dweck’s lessons on how we unintentionally instill unproductive, fixed mindsets in children are unforgettable, in a good way. Plus, how many books combine business, education, and Michael Jordan?
