Mindset: The New Psychology of Success Reviews

    Okay, so the idea is fine, and usable, and easy to explain to others, and pretty simple. I was about to give this book a one-star rating because I was so irritated with Dr. Dweck trying to shoehorn her idea into every single success story in the history of humanity and basically saying...

    Here is a message to anyone close to me who may over hear me saying, 'I must read that popular psychology book ...', at some point in the future. Don't let me forget how vapid and uninspiring this book was. Please remark: 'don't forget about Mindset Mark!' Let me try and save you s...

    I keep hearing educators praising this author and, specifically, this book. Maybe she's better in person. I found this book trite. It was very repetitive and full of cherry picked stories pulled out just to prove her obvious conclusion. Are there really people who think that if you go ...

    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 bu...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    Full Review Here Have ever noticed those geeks, geniuses, and world-class achievers while thinking to yourself, gosh, if only I had such talents, or if only I had such high IQ? Disappointing, I know, I have been there. Perhaps, such way of thinking and having such beliefs about IQ and...

    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 m...

    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 on...

    Another book that attempts to build upon the research of Anders Ericsson. The way I read it, I would break the book into 3 parts: Part 1: How people fail because they don't have the right mindset Part 2: How people success because they have the right mindset Part 3: You could als...

    It's pretty bad when after 15 pages, I want to fling a book away in disgust. But I kept reading. (Okay, it turned into skimming pretty quickly). And it DIDN'T GET BETTER. I've read several thoughtful and interesting pieces of journalism lately referencing the general thesis of this...

    Great overarching concept, lackluster execution. In Mindset, Professor of Psychology Carol S. Dweck discusses the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. The fixed mindset focuses on immovable measures of achievement and ability, such as the idea that everyone is born ...

    This is a book which the administrators in my organization are reading. I am reading it as well, though I'm not an administrator. I am only on page 43 but I already have dismissed the ideas and the author as superficial. Written in a casual style (the author states in the introduct...

    I bought this book last year, but didn't get around to it. While reading something else recently, it referred to this one and I decided to give it a go. The basic premise is that "the view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life." "Believing that you...

    This is as simple as it is revolutionary. Should be required reading for parents and educators, but everyone can benefit--even if you aren't really on the prowl for 'success'. What I love most is that the concept will improve yourself, but even if you struggle to change your mindset fr...

    A bit long-winded at times, but well worth reading. The repetition could be frustrating, but the reinforcement was likely beneficial. I'm starting to see the growth and fixed mindset all around me, especially in other books I'm reading and movies I'm watching, and it's fascinating to r...

    Almost all of us know what the author is trying to say "have a growth-mindset and success is about learning it is not about proving you are smart... and that innate talent is nothing because success is 99% hard work..." even children know that!!! the book is full of examples and...

    I read the first few chapters but then ended up skimming the rest. I absolutely agree with the author that it's better to have a growth mindset than a fixed mindset. It just seemed like the author made the point and then kept repeating it over and over again. I did think it was valuabl...

    Second reading: 25 February 2016 - 5 March 2016. Reread this wonderful gem, confirming the fact that this book really is a game changer. This rereading also confirmed that this is one of the books that will accompany my growth throughout different phases of my life. I believe it will...

    The flap copy on this book promised it would be "a great book that will change your life." That certainly raised my expectations, and I'm happy to report that I wasn't disappointed. The premise of the book is the basis of cognitive psychology: what you believe affects your whole lif...

    2.5? First, the concept was good, the first chapters were great but then the I found the book to be very repetitive, it could have been written in about 150 pages, and a little bit judgmental, sometimes even a bit hard on the people with the fixed mindset. ...

    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. ...

    I read the first few chapters but then ended up skimming the rest. I absolutely agree with the author that it's better to have a growth mindset than a fixed mindset. It just seemed like the author made the point and then kept repeating it over and over again. I did think it was valuabl...

    Second reading: 25 February 2016 - 5 March 2016. Reread this wonderful gem, confirming the fact that this book really is a game changer. This rereading also confirmed that this is one of the books that will accompany my growth throughout different phases of my life. I believe it will...

    The flap copy on this book promised it would be "a great book that will change your life." That certainly raised my expectations, and I'm happy to report that I wasn't disappointed. The premise of the book is the basis of cognitive psychology: what you believe affects your whole lif...

    2.5? First, the concept was good, the first chapters were great but then the I found the book to be very repetitive, it could have been written in about 150 pages, and a little bit judgmental, sometimes even a bit hard on the people with the fixed mindset. ...

    I feel like the criticism this book gets is an exhibit of fixed mindset. Simple concept, yes, but universally applicable. Definitely left a profound impact on how I think and see the world, and I would like people around me to have read it. So five stars. ...
