Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, by Carol Dwek*

This book explains why it is not just our abilities and talent that bring us success - but whether we approach our goals with a fixed our growth mindset. It makes clear why praising our children's intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to improve in school, as well as reach our own goals.
