  • Very repetitive.

    I had to stop reading and start skimming. The point the author is making was made in the first chapter. I don't think 20 examples of the exact same idea in different scenarios of life is necessary to get the point across. Its like I'm reading the same material over and over again just substituting a different name and profession each time. No doubt a lot of work went into it. Research and studies etc.. but they all could have been presented much more concisely.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I think I can, I think I can...

    I read this book because it was mentioned in Geoff Colvin's Talent is Overrated. I have always believed that if you think you can learn/do something, you have a much better chance of being able to do it. This book does a great job of explaining how a positive mindset can change the way you learn.

  • Insightful

    It opened my mind to the fact that anything is possible if you just change your mindset.

  • 5 pages are enough

    The entire thesis of this book is that a growth mindset is better than a fixed mindset. Five pages would have been more than enough to state the thesis, refer to a couple of studies and give a few examples. Instead the author drivels on and on with example after example.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 5 pages of content stretched into hundreds

    The first chapter is insightful and promising. A growth mindset can help you overcome challenges by relishing them. The rest of the book is tedious cherry picked anecdotes about growth mindset people overcoming challenges while fixed mindset individuals fall flat on their face. It reads like a college paper done overnight and handed in just to get a passing grade.

    Thanks for your feedback!
