Mindset: The New Psychology of Success Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The updated edition of the best-selling book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset.
“Through clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates how our beliefs about our capabilities exert tremendous influence on how we learn and which paths we take in life.” (Bill Gates, GatesNotes)
After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, PhD, 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 a growth 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.

Felt more like an attempt at brainwash than anything really interesting.
I will save you all the money and tell you the final conclusion:
People can continue to learn and get smarter.
IQ is not a fixed thing and can constantly be improved by anyone.
Anyone who believes otherwise or that they are special are in a "fixed mindset".
Anyone who believes they can improve their intelligence/skills/knowledge is in a "growth mindset".
Growth mindset is better than fixed mindset.
I read through in 2 hours. There are many principles on the reasoning of the things happened in our life, and you couldn't find the explanation anywhere else.
But when I read it second time carefully, I found the shortcoming for the book is a lack of practical instruction on how to apply in real life. A little bit too thoughtful, making it infeasible to me who has overthinking tendency.
I now agree with most 1-star, 2-star, and 3-star Reviews.
I did scan the 5-star (74%) and 4-star (14%) Reviews BEFORE Ordering..
In my opinion, most 5-star and 4-star Reviews were misleading for me.
No point repeating the issues with this book.
You may want to scan the low Reviews before Ordering.
Got that depth in the first 2 chapters.
After that, the book really is just anecdote after anecdote after anecdote telling me the theory is wonderful without actually telling me how to apply the theory -it felt like I was listening to a jovial preacher telling me how great their theory was.
As a person in leadership & a facilitator, I wanted to apply the growth mindset to workplace culture. I looked forward to some discussion in the section about applying the theory to business. That section was all about leader stories - only 2 pages about application to workplace culture & even that was perfunctionary.
The theory is sound - just wish the book had actually talked about the application of the theory rather then spending 90% trying to prove to you the theory was correct.
Additionally, the author doesn’t just talk about a theoretical concept, but rather provides some good actionable steps to actually start working on getting a growth mindset.
I would recommend reading this if you’re feeling stuck or stagnant. A mindset shift might be the thing you need to unblock yourself and move forward.

Even if you don't agree with every argument made in the book (I didn't) it's a thought-provoking read nonetheless. Especially useful for people who have strong ideas around their "natural talents".
I can safely say I'll be taking many of the ideas in this book with me into the future - optimistic and practical.
That's it. I'm not being overly critical of the book or idea. That is the book stretched out using examples from sports, business, relationships, and pretty much areas where your mindset can help determine where you proceed when faced with a challenge.
I don't know how someone could give this five stars. I don't mean that to be rude but you're more or less reading the same idea on every page.
Had to return and had to pay to postage to return.
