The core point of this book is fantastic and wonderful: we are creatures of growth, and if we approach our lives with the mindset that we can change and are not fixed, then it will have a huge impact on our development and potential.

That's it -- you could have written that in a blog post. But the other simply beats the point to death for 250 pages, with example after example after example. It goes on and on to the point where you don't even care anymore.

I unquestionably agree with her point and I thank her for making it. But it's not a complicated or subtle point, and it's a great example of something that suffers from the standard length of a book. This simply didn't need to be an entire book.
