Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Mindset is "an established set of attitudes held by someone," says the OxfordAmerican Dictionary. It turns out, however, that a set of attitudes needn't beso set, according to Dweck, professor of psychology at Stanford. Dweckproposes that everyone has either a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. A fixedmindset is one in which you view your talents and abilities as... well, fixed.In other words, you are who you are, your intelligence and talents are fixed,and your fate is to go through life avoiding challenge and failure. A growthmindset, on the other hand, is one in which you see yourself as fluid, a workin progress. Your fate is one of growth and opportunity. Which mindset do youpossess? Dweck provides a checklist to assess yourself and shows how aparticular mindset can affect all areas of your life, from business to sportsand love. The good news, says Dweck, is that mindsets are not set: at anytime, you can learn to use a growth mindset to achieve success and happiness.This is a serious, practical book. Dweck's overall assertion that rigidthinking benefits no one, least of all yourself, and that a change of mind isalways possible, is welcome. _(On sale Feb. 28)_ Copyright (C) Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
