Mindset - Updated Edition: Changing The Way You think To Fulfil Your Potential 6th Edition, Kindle Edition
World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly 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 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 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 is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation.
A good book is one whose advice you believe. 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 the years, become more demanding rather than less. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.
If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

This is one of the most important books should you consider changing your personality through your attitude. Even if you are not a ferocious reader, you can just read the first half of the book and you are done. The author spends the rest of time in justifying his theory in the second part.
Top reviews from other countries
This book has salient information for everyone but the delivery is so laboured, it's easy to miss. You can get the gist by reading the summary at the end of each chapter and speeding through the final chapter (8), skipping around 75%.
Definitely buy this book if:
* you like your information delivered slowly in a narrative form and repeated
* you have a big interest in US sports
* you find social proof persuasive or motivating.
"How to Fail at Everything and Still Win Big" by Scott Adams would be a suitable replacement and is a much better investment of time.
Felt more like an attempt at brainwash than anything really interesting.
I will save you all the money and tell you the final conclusion:
People can continue to learn and get smarter.
IQ is not a fixed thing and can constantly be improved by anyone.
Anyone who believes otherwise or that they are special are in a "fixed mindset".
Anyone who believes they can improve their intelligence/skills/knowledge is in a "growth mindset".
Growth mindset is better than fixed mindset.
Or try and make a difference. In your work life, your personal life, how you deal with colleagues, your friends, family and your children. This book is not a "tickbox" or a "top ten things you need to do" and the reason for this, is that the change has to come from within you. This book purley is a catalyst to empower you to make that change. I've purchased a copy for all my friends for Christmas.
The central premise of the book is a statement of the obvious: You can get better at anything you like; it just requires effort, effective strategies and learning from setbacks. People who do this often out-perform people who have greater innate ability but do not apply effort, go through the motions and blame setbacks on others.
That’s it. The rest of the book is endless US-centric sporting anecdotes, written in the glib style of a 300-page LinkedIn post. Some parts really made me cringe: “The growth mindset gave me a mother”; “Parents who send fixed-mindset messages are like France, and parents who send growth-mindset messages are like Italy”; “If we do not learn and work hard, we will take an Icarian flight to nowhere” (the latter supposedly uttered by a four-year-old boy with a STRONG growth mindset).
My recommendation would be to read a one-page summary of this book online, then spend the time you would have spent reading the book studying “Learning to Learn” on Coursera, which provides much more insightful and practical advice about getting better at things in (dare I say it?) a growth-minded way.
