Great book but it's missing examples of Kobe Brant's mindset.

Great book for promoting personal and intellectual growth. One missing element is Kobe Brant's views on mindset.

It is not the upgraded edition

It is a good book

Will help anyone

A new way of,thinking and living.

If you want to learn about Mindset, start here.

While this book was first published in 2006, it is still relevant today. There is an updated version published in 2017. Make sure to check the ISBN before purchase if you're looking for the 2017 edition. However, this edition is a worthy first step on the subject of Mindset.

Not just self-help, but a great insight into public failures and successes

I was fortunate to have read the author's previous work, Self-theories, a collection of essays exploring her research into motivational patterns and achievement, and while I found her prose wonderfully accessible and lucid, especially for an academician and researcher, I wondered how she would fare in Mindset, which goes head-to-head with books in the pop-psychology mainstream. I was delighted to find that she has fleshed out the theories and conclusions from Self-theories in a light, fast-moving and enthusiastic style that makes for a compulsive read. My son goes to a recently-formed progressive school where students have a lot of input into the class offerings and teaching styles are quite varied and adventurous. If enough want a course, the school strives to make it available within the mandatory class requirements. So languages, for instance, include French, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic and American Sign Language. I gave a copy of Self-theories to the founder and driving force of the school and he devoured it, claiming he now had a powerful academic foundation to answer those curious about and critical of the school's approach. I think he will find Mindset an even more persuasive tool, since it shows in example-laden manner how mindsets developed early in life can dictate our potential and our limitations - and what we can do about it at any stage in our lives. What makes Mindset particularly compelling is the avalanche of vivid stories from lives of the ordinary and the celebrated in the worlds of business, science, education and sports. (Some readers may be surprised, as I was, to find a respected professor of psychology to be almost exhaustively knowledgeable about sports and its superstars, as well as the ins and outs of the corporate world.) Each chapter is filled with anecdotes from everyday people as well as names still making headlines today, demonstrating how a fixed mindset can constrict a life while a growth mindset can liberate and empower one. And Dweck is refreshingly fearless in taking some of our major icons of public life to task, in often tart prose, for their failures and stubborn blunders. John McEnroe, Lee Iacocca, Bobby Knight and others come under her knife. There's a certain wicked satisfaction to be found in puncturing the self-importance of the rich and fatuous. She even turns the lens of her criticism to her own life, reviewing not only her successes but also the failings and her struggles to apply the insights she's exploring. While each chapter also ends with a checklist for evaluating one's own mindset and its life consequences and there's something of a primer for shifting mindsets at the end, this is not merely a how-to manual. It's the cumulative effect of the individual stories that makes the most persuasive argument for Dweck's theories. I find myself coming up with my own examples of dueling mindsets among family, friends and co-workers, so apparently merely reading the book (and it's a quick 255

If you affect someone's life, or want to improve your own, you've got to read this book!

If you are a parent, teacher, student, coach, employer, employee, looking for a job, or in a relationship (did I leave anyone out?) you have to read this book. As a parent, I truly believe this book should be mandatory reading for any teacher, education major, or coach, because it made me realize that the feedback our children are given from teachers and coaches can have a harmful or beneficial impact on them for the rest of their lives (unless they read this book later in life and decide to change their mindset). Teachers need to realize how what they say, even if it appears positive, can stunt the intellectual, emotional, and even the creative growth of a child or student of any age. This book showed me how certain things I may say to my children to praise them, actually may hurt their continued growth--and it taught me a better way to give praise. This book is very helpful in teaching a person what to focus on when giving praise or criticism, whether to a student, son or daughter, employee, etc. As a business owner, I hope I can take what I learned from this book and not only use it to help my business grow, but also help my employees grow by helping them achieve a "growth mindset". As a parent, I hope to help cultivate my children into "growth mindset" oriented individuals, and as a wife, this book will help my relationship continue to grow. Once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down. It would make a great teacher's gift-but give it to them at the beginning of the year, so that your child will benefit from their newfound knowledge!
