Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Now updated with new research—the book that has changed millions of lives

    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 agrowth 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.

    feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review)
