From the renowned psychologist who introduced the world to “growth mindset” comes this updated edition of the million-copy bestseller—featuring transformative insights into redefining success, building lifelong resilience, and supercharging self-improvement.

“Through clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates how our beliefs about our capabilities exert tremendous influence on how we learn and which paths we take in life.”—Bill Gates, GatesNotes


“It’s not always the people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest.”

After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.

CAROL S. DWECK, Ph.D., the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and a member of the American Academy of Art and Sciences, is widely regarded as one of the world's leading researchers in the fields of personality, social psychology, and developmental psychology. Her first book, Self-Theories: Their Role in Motivation, Personality, and Development was named Book of the Year by the World Education Fellowship.

Dweck's work was recently featured in a New York magazine cover story (" How Not to Talk to Your Kids," 2/12) written by Po Bronson, which had an immediate impact on book sales and which was covered by numerous media outlets. Dweck was also recently featured as an expert in a Psychology Today cover story as well as in Time and O magazine. She has also been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Boston Globe. Her media appearances include The Today Show and 20/20. She lives with her husband in Palo Alto, California.Visit her website at mindsetonline.com.
