Mindset is "an established set of attitudes held by someone," says the Oxford American Dictionary. It turns out, however, that a set of attitudes needn't be so set, according to Dweck, professor of psychology at Stanford. Dweck proposes that everyone has either a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. A fixed mindset is one in which you view your talents and abilities as... well, fixed. In other words, you are who you are, your intelligence and talents are fixed, and your fate is to go through life avoiding challenge and failure. A growth mindset, on the other hand, is one in which you see yourself as fluid, a work in progress. Your fate is one of growth and opportunity. Which mindset do you possess? Dweck provides a checklist to assess yourself and shows how a particular mindset can affect all areas of your life, from business to sports and love. The good news, says Dweck, is that mindsets are not set: at any time, you can learn to use a growth mindset to achieve success and happiness. This is a serious, practical book. Dweck's overall assertion that rigid thinking benefits no one, least of all yourself, and that a change of mind is always possible, is welcome. (On sale Feb. 28)

An utterly compelling story of how the way we think shapes our success.Essential reading for anyone with aspirations. -- Matthew Syed, author of Bounce and two-time Olympic athlete. Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation. -- Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. I have found Carol Dweck's work on mindsets invaluable in my own life, and even life-changing in my attitudes toward the challenges that, over the years, become more demanding rather than less. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine. -- Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Education and Psychology at Yale University. If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset. -- Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start.

It demonstrated to me that I have a mix of fixed and growth mindsets and in particular offered advice on how to motivate my children. A great read, written in a simple and easy to understand style, it has good examples and is structured in a logical process.
While the fixed mindset v growth mindset concept seems simplistic at first glance, there are many subtleties to understating the effects of each mindset, and complexities to learning how to change. Having a simple model like this is very useful if you understand the details behind it and the book mixes reporting on research with anecdotes to give the concepts both a good psychological basis and resonance for readers. I expect that I'll find the material in this book useful in many work and personal situations.
