it was ok
bookshelves: professional, nonfiction
Read in November, 2010

Growth mindset=good. You realize you and others can change and grow, that intelligence (and other qualities) are not fixed.

Fixed mindset=problematic. When you encounter problems, you give up because it's just not your thing; when teaching, you give up on some kids because they're ____ (fill in the blank).

This was a good idea but not long enough for a book. It got very repetitive very quickly, and I found myself saying (out loud!) "I get it already!"

I recommend the premise, but can't recommend the book. Maybe read the first couple of chapters.
