Carol Dweck takes years of research and condenses and renders it clear and relevant to anyone who works as a parent, manager, coach, or teacher through multiple case studies, anecdotes, and examples from laboratory research. The importance of mindset on motivation and achievement is convincing, and Dweck provides guidance on the kind of self-talk and feedback that can turn a fixed mindset into a growth mindset. I found this book a great companion to Rita Smilkstein's "Born to Learn," which I use to initiate my school year and discuss how our brain learns with my students with disabilities. I will now enrich those lessons with Dweck's insights.
