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.

You will learn new insights about dealing with different scenarios at work, relationships and parenting, and how to use a growth-mindset to overcome failure and challenges in these areas.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for an alternative perspective on nurture vs nature.

This book has salient information for everyone but the delivery is so laboured, it's easy to miss. You can get the gist by reading the summary at the end of each chapter and speeding through the final chapter (8), skipping around 75%.
Definitely buy this book if:
* you like your information delivered slowly in a narrative form and repeated
* you have a big interest in US sports
* you find social proof persuasive or motivating.
"How to Fail at Everything and Still Win Big" by Scott Adams would be a suitable replacement and is a much better investment of time.
Or try and make a difference. In your work life, your personal life, how you deal with colleagues, your friends, family and your children. This book is not a "tickbox" or a "top ten things you need to do" and the reason for this, is that the change has to come from within you. This book purley is a catalyst to empower you to make that change. I've purchased a copy for all my friends for Christmas.
Was mich etwas gestört hat: Ihr Buch beginnt Frau Dweck mit den Worten "No book has ever explained this mindset and shown people how to make use of it in their lives." - das entspricht nicht der Realität. Von der Philosophie der Antike (besonders die Stoiker) über Nietzsche bis hin zu Psychologen wie Kazimierz Dabrowski: Das Gedankengut findet sich bereits bei vielen anderen Menschen und in vielen anderen Büchern, bloß sind diese nicht so modern und haben keinen griffigen Titel wie "growth mindset". Der Nobelpreisträger Santiago Ramón y Cajal meinte vor hundert Jahren schon: "Any man could, if he were so inclined, be the sculptor of his own brain." Das ist im Wesentlichen die Botschaft des Buches, deren Bedeutung dann durch viele Beispiele erläutert wird. Hier hätte ich mir wenigstens eine andeutungsweise historische Einordnung gewünscht.
Zusammenfassend: Wer sich mal einen Vortrag von Dweck angehört hat und lesen möchte, wie das growth mindset in verschiedenen Situationen konkret aussieht, um ein besseres Verständnis zu erlangen, der kann das Buch guten Gewissens kaufen. Man kann hier durchaus etwas lernen, auch wenn an Theorie vergleichen mit ihren TED Talks nicht so viel dazu kommt.
The central premise of the book is a statement of the obvious: You can get better at anything you like; it just requires effort, effective strategies and learning from setbacks. People who do this often out-perform people who have greater innate ability but do not apply effort, go through the motions and blame setbacks on others.
That’s it. The rest of the book is endless US-centric sporting anecdotes, written in the glib style of a 300-page LinkedIn post. Some parts really made me cringe: “The growth mindset gave me a mother”; “Parents who send fixed-mindset messages are like France, and parents who send growth-mindset messages are like Italy”; “If we do not learn and work hard, we will take an Icarian flight to nowhere” (the latter supposedly uttered by a four-year-old boy with a STRONG growth mindset).
My recommendation would be to read a one-page summary of this book online, then spend the time you would have spent reading the book studying “Learning to Learn” on Coursera, which provides much more insightful and practical advice about getting better at things in (dare I say it?) a growth-minded way.
