Product Description

World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has came upon a in point of fact groundbreaking idea—the power of our mindset.

Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success—but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may in truth jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we will be able to motivate our kids and lend a hand them to raise their grades, in addition to reach our own goals—personal 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 may be the basis of great accomplishment in each and every area.


Praise for Mindset


“Everyone must read this book.”—Chip and Dan Heath, authors of Switch and Made to Stick

“Will prove to be one of the crucial influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, creator of NurtureShock

“A good book is one whose advice you imagine. A great book is one whose advice you follow. I have found Carol Dweck’s work on mindsets invaluable in my own life, and even life-changing in my attitudes toward the challenges that, over time, turn into more demanding moderately than less. This can be a book that may 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 creator of Successful Intelligence

“For those who manage any people or if you're a parent (which is a type of managing people), drop the whole lot and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, creator of The Art of the Start and the blog Change the World

“Highly advisable . . . an very important read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . in addition to for individuals who wish to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“A serious, practical book. Dweck’s overall assertion that rigid thinking benefits nobody, least of all yourself, and that a change of mind is all the time imaginable, is welcome.”—Publishers Weekly

“A wonderfully elegant idea . . . This is a great book.”—Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., creator of Delivered from Distraction
