Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, by Carol Dweck, Ph.D.*

In her ground breaking book, Psychologist Carol Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success–but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids, as well as reach our own goals–personal and professional.
