Mindset: The New Psychology of Success Reviews

  • Otis Chandler
    Recommended in Stanford Magazine and by Guy Kawasaki.A very useful book about the growth mindset. Essentially, the book makes a case that those people who look at everything they do in life as a learning opportunity are much more successful. I think where this comes into play most often is when we f...

    This is probably all i really need to hear out of this book, but i will read the whole thing anyway. there are two mindsets. fixed and growth.Believing that your qualities are carved in stone -- the fixed mindset -- creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over. If you have only a certain amoun...

    Excellent book. This one sounds like a typical self-help book, but it's a real find. The author is a pyschology researcher at Columbia, and her book is filled with insights and illustrations regarding the differences that a fixed mindset vs. a growth mindset can have when applied to business, parent...

    I keep hearing educators praising this author and, specifically, this book. Maybe she's better in person. I found this book trite.

    I think a lot of people who rated this book highly must have had a "fixed mindset".I think this book was a waste of money, personally. The tone of the book is very repetitive and annoying. Essentially people with a growth mindset are better than people without it in every possible way. If you have a...

    Let me preface this review by saying that my boss made me read this book, because, apparently, reading assignments are something that I should have as a 5th year PhD candidate. Not only that, but I'm pretty sure no one should require me to read a shitty waste-of time self help book.Let me save you t...

    تأثیر این کتاب روی من عجیب بود. مخصوصا اینکه چیز جدیدی به من نمی گفت. چیزهایی رو می گفت که ...
