Good Book with nice pointers but has a very female oriented solution to everything

Quite enjoyed the book and gives you really good tips and insights about how to change your mindset. It’s pretty cool. The book too is littered throughout with interesting stories and scenarios in which the writers idea play out. The book is indeed very accessible.

Though with that said, the book does seem to have a feminist bias. In most of the examples the boys are having a hard time and the mother shows the correct way. Moreover quite a lot of solutions boil down to talking it out and discussing, which at times work but is essentially a very female way of sorting things out.

But the writers heart is in the right place and I found the book to be quite helpful as well as informative.

A true bookbkn motivation

Mindset defined in black and white
The chapters on sports coaches and the sports person is absorbing.
How effort and hardwork makes you comfortable, than beleving in the talent and proving it repeatedly stunts the growth.
Would re-read the last 3 chapters for students, parents and teachers.
A definitive book for parents and teachers

Material Meaningful, Production Pathetic

Background: I am using _Mindset_ as part of extra credit for a senior's HS class on Thinking, To prepare well, I am following the text while listening to the recording.
Overall: I highly recommend the material within this book/recording. The writing overcomes the poor production qualities of the recording.
Performance: The voice is tolerable; it does sound a little helium-like. At the same time, the reading was done well, with good pace, intonation, and inflection.
Production: My frustration comes from the production. The Introduction is inserted into the middle of one of the earlier chapters, forcing the rest of that chapter to be identified as as the next, within the navigation function. This will knock the rest out of sync. I'm only part of the way through, but I expect more problems. If I were the author or her manager, I'd be furious. I blame Amazon because, since they bought out Audible, the products, the downloading, the service have all been inferior and getting worse.

Good information, too long for me

this is a great book but I understood the point about 45 minutes into the book. just very repetitive, and the author gives the same example to prove a slightly different point multiple times.

Longer than it needed to be

I enjoyed this book to a point but I thought too many of the points were belabored. The idea of a growth mindset is indeed a commendable one. I just got bored and skipped the last two chapters.

Needs more Growth

Great book outlining the different mindsets. The real challenge is that I was expecting actual strategies to help me get into a growth mindset, and there just wasn’t much of anything. Listen to the last chapter or two.

Good Platform to do introspection

Very insightful, it was a good platform to do introspection and and be brutally honest with yourself, but also be equipped with how to improve your mindset.

Useful Concept. Dragged out with the same Repeated message.

The overall message has some great takeaways & useful concepts that have real world application; however it got painful after the first few chapters. It’s 8 chapters of the same repeated message in MANY different case studies. I was hoping for some clear, concise actionable steps rather than having to read between the lines of unrelatable case studies. The key concepts of this book can easily be found on doing a little research on the fixed & growth mindset, save yourself laborious task of reading the whole thing. Not one i will be revisiting.

Too repetitive

I only made it through half the book. I found after the introduction it just repeated the same thing but in different circumstances. I found it too black and white in its approach. There weren’t strategies on how to change your mindset. I also bought this version because it was narrated by carol dweck. Only the introduction is. Then the pace changes to a much faster and harder to listen to style of narration. The reason why I stopped listening was because I felt it wasn’t adding any more beyond that if the introductory chapters. Finally, in the job I work making mistakes are very costly, this then nurtures tendencies towards the fixed mindset as mistakes have high consequences. I felt the book didn’t really deal at all with situations like this.

Great lessons for self-refection!

Loved & loathed it. There were too many (seemingly irrelevant to me) examples, but at the end I realised it was all necessary when I found the example that hit home for me. Keep listening, it actually gets really good. The narrators voice was a bit jarring, but overall a great lesson is to had for all! Worth it in the end!

Fixed mindset vs Growth mindset

I found the information in this book both informative, practical and fascinating- I’d recommend this book if you’re seriously interested in developing better health, closer connection in your relationships, or if you’re looking to improve yourself, long term…

Good book that ran out of steam

But too long for the concept, should be 2/3 the length. Horrible self promotion: “here is a letter I received …” worth a read / listen though
