Mindset by Carol S. Dweck Book Summary

From the renowned psychologist who introduced the world to “growth mindset” comes this updated edition of the million-copy bestseller—featuring transformative insights into redefining success, building lifelong resilience, and supercharging self-improvement.

“Through clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates how our beliefs about our capabilities exert tremendous influence on how we learn and which paths we take in life.”—Bill Gates, GatesNotes

“It’s not always the people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest.”

After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.

Mindset (Carol S. Dweck) Book Reviews

Love this book!!This book is a must read for ever person looking to have more insight into how we can think as a parent, coach, teacher, boss, spouse, etc.. I have learned many things from reading this and plan to continually focus on the growth mindset in rearing my two young boys. There is so much value in these pages and I truly appreciate learning the tools needed to shift my way of thinking. Thank you!!.Score: 5/5

Fantastic bookMust read book for anyone who wants to develop a mindset of growth and improvement.Score: 5/5

Geared for parents, teachers and kidsWhile I completely endorse Dweck's thesis on continual learning as a mindset, this book is aimed squarely at families. As a single professional without kids, I found myself skipping chunks of this book when the supporting evidence focused on kids or school. If you are a parent, teenager or teacher, this book is for you. If you are like myself, less so..Score: 4/5

OutstandingA must read for anyone in this world. This book will reveal the mindset that will help you overcome any obstacle in your life..Score: 5/5

Great content, terrible writerMs. Dweck happily admits at the outset that she chose a questionable writing style. She's not kidding. This book would benefit from some heavy editing. The information and insight she imparts is profoundly useful and important. I just couldn't get past the impulse to think she's pulling a lot of her anecdotes out of her imagination because she staunchly refuses to provide citations. She also often speaks of individuals who are researchers or teachers etc. but can't be bothered to say where they're from or how they received their bona fides. Ultimately for me this book is very useful but I find I'm forcing myself to accept that the research she cites is real because she offers no evidence..Score: 4/5

MindsetExcellent book. Information that should be intuitive, but is strikingly easy to forget. Mandatory reading for all educators, coaches and parents. Also great insight for employers, managers or team leaders. I highly recommend this book..Score: 5/5

Must read for allThis book should be handed out with every newborn child, every marriage ceremony, every graduation, and every new hire. Much is explained concisely and clearly- but more important are the concrete steps provided to change the way we think..Score: 5/5

Life changingThe beauty of this book is in its simplicity. The importance for our happiness, success and that of our kids can not be underestimated. A hugely influential book based on thorough research. Every parent, teacher and coach should read this and everybody interested in self improvement as well!.Score: 5/5

Change my life.I was always a pessimist, I thought thinking of the bad will help me "prevent or be prepared for the worse" this book completely changed way of thinking for the better, taught me to embrace challenge and see failure as an opportunity to learn and grow. I never review anything but this deserves nothing but praise..Score: 5/5

Narrator's dramatic rendering drops a starA high impact book that has changed the way i approach all challenges and greatly influenced how i parent my children, especially during times of adversity. The narrator's voice is comically over-dramatic and (likely) self aggrandizing Were it not for the strain required to focus on the critical messages of this important book thru the hamming of the reader, I would give it 5 stars..Score: 4/5

Life ChangerA must read for all!!!.Score: 5/5

Grow and grow richAmazing how changing just a few different habits in how I think changes the entire trajectory of my life. It's Robert Frost's two paths come to life through research..."...less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." And indeed it does. This is one of the most enjoyable, thought-provoking books I've read in ages. Every page is filled with me, both fixed and growth. I think you'll find yourself in these pages as well. Good luck in shaking hands with your finest self if you follow the advice. Thank you Dr. Dweck..Score: 5/5

Life changingI've heard a little about both mindsets before. Never actually knowing the difference til I read this book. It was extremely helping and knowing the difference. Throughout the book I could remember both times when I reacted with one mindset or the other. Now that I know my triggers of the fix mindset. I can take a moment and go over how to grow into the growth mindset.Score: 5/5

Mindset is behind strategies and all the tricksI learned a lot of strategies to have good habits or to be successful, but behind all the strategies and tricks, it is mindset that really influences our behavior. I gave a name to my fixed mindset persona. I’m going to try to work on my fixed mindset personal to see where we can go..Score: 5/5

MindsetI enjoyed this book, and found the information helpful, but would have loved more exercises on changing one's mindset through CBT.Score: 4/5

Brilliant!I LOVE the idea of having a growth mindset. Revolutionary. Reading this book was like turning a light switch on. We aren't the sum of our intelligence and talent, these are just the starting points. Through dedication and hard work we are always growing, learning, and evolving. Fixed mindset: This is just how I am Growth mindset: I can learn and grow and become anything I want. Great stuff!.Score: 5/5

Must Read!!!Life changing body of work.Score: 5/5

One of the very Best!!This book is one of the very best I have read. Truly influential and reflective of one’s life. You probably would relate to your own circumstances and situations in each of these chapters. Some of the attempts made at humor probably needs work, but believe me you are not going to read this for humor - Painful things people go through are nothing to laugh about anyway. The book was so engrossing and the first time I read, I read this book over a weekend. I would recommend to all Parents, Teachers and Coaches to have this book as a reference manual..Score: 5/5
