Overall I found it a useful read that made me think about my own mindset when approaching different kinds of things. Some of the anecdotes, especially some sections about professional sports I was not really convinced by though. Another issue I had with the book was that after the halfway point I started feeling that it was mostly rehashing what had already been said with an endless stream of examples. I also would liked more references to research. I listened to this right after Kelly McGonigal's excellent The Willpower Experiment and was expecting something similar but while I don't regret picking up Mindset, it definitely was not as good as that book.
