World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea–the power of our mindset.
Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success–but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals–personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.
Praise for Mindset

“An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick
“One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these Mindset: The New Psychology of Success I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

The answer to life, the universe and everything
My friend, an international school headteacher, finally talked me into reading this book. I thought this book kind of brainwashed him. Now all he can talk about is fixed mindset this and fixed mindset that.
Creating dichotomy never really gives you any answers. Dweck piled all the common sense platitudes, like "believe in yourself," "work hard,"always learn" "don't give up" - any simple internet search would yield hundreds of quotations stating the same written by famous individuals throughout centuries in any language, but she sells it as if she's discovered something hitherto nobody knew about by attaching a cool word to it - mindset. Yeah. It's the growth mindset, you see. Gotcha. Now it all makes sense!... And then on the other side there're, of course, the baddies, the fixed mindset folks, and she picked her baddies well like tennis player McEnroe and Chrysler's CEO Lacocca, all those stuck-ups, egoists, megalomaniacs, who do everything wrong and that's why they don't grow. Boooo. She goes on and on and on and on. And then some more.
I think what happened is this. Here's a professor of psychology who's dealt with complex issues of her profession, tedious research and kind of articles only a handful of readers bothered to read. And at some point she just felt like - forget the grays, I'll paint the world black and white. I'll write one simple book that will explain away all these complexities with a no-nonsense, straightforward message and make the world a better place. The answer to life, the universe and everything.
Or maybe I have a fixed mindset, like my friend said, and I "just don't get it." Perhaps.

Very disappointing! I bought the book while babysitting at my daughter's house. After reading the first chapter I got a copy for myself. The rest of the book was the point made in the first chapter over and over and over and over and over..... I read the whole thing trying to find the missing substance. Please don't waste your time or money.

Interesting theory, yet lacking depth
By Peng Jin
I first came across the author in a TED video. Her talk about how "not yet" generates far more power than "fail" was interesting and I decided to buy her book to further read into her studies. The book in general is an interesting piece of work. I like the way she describes the "growth mindset". However, most of the book seems to focus on discussing the difference between "fixed mindset" and "growth mindset" applied to different fields. So it does get very predictable and tedious. There is far not enough discussion about how to better develop the "growth mindset". It is like the author uses the entire book to emphasize how important "growth mindset" is but doesn't really offer much help. In particular, I don't like how she attributes every corporate failure to "fixed mindset". I think it is way too generalizing and over-simplifying.
