READING: Now updated with new research, the book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset. 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. Praise for Mindset “A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success “An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick “One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock “If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start 2.0

READING: So much to read, so little time? This brief overview of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success tells you what you need to know—before or after you read Carol Dweck’s book. Crafted and edited with care, Worth Books set the standard for quality and give you the tools you need to be a well-informed reader. This short summary and analysis of Mindset includes: Historical context Chapter-by-chapter overviews Profiles of the main characters Detailed timeline of events Important quotes Fascinating trivia Glossary of terms Supporting material to enhance your understanding of the original work About Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck: Why do some people flourish when faced with a challenge, while others crumble? This is the question that has defined Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck’s decades of research, resulting in her ground-breaking theory of mindset. Dweck believes that talent and intelligence do not tell the full story about one’s ability to achieve. Instead, what determines personal success is whether one has a fixed or growth mindset; the first is a belief that our qualities and strengths cannot be altered, and the second way of thinking supports the idea that they can change over time. Based on meticulous research, and with anecdotes about successful CEOs, athletes, artists, and educators who achieved greatness through attitude as much as ability, Mindset offers new ways of thinking about motivation and personal development. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Waarom hebben getalenteerde mensen vaak moeite om hun doelen te bereiken terwijl minder begaafde individuen soms zonder slag of stoot verbazingwekkende prestaties leveren? Op basis van haar eigen verhaal als dochter van een wetenschapper die zich vaak beklaagde over haar vermeende gebrek aan intelligentie, beschrijft Angela Duckworth haar loopbaan door het onderwijs, de consultancybusiness en de neurowetenschap. Het leidde tot de hypothese dat werkelijk succes vooral ontstaat door een speciale mix van volledige overgave en de vastberadenheid om te werken aan je langetermijndoelen: grit. In dit boek doet Duckworth, winnaar van de prestigieuze MacArthur Genius Award, haar theorie uit de doeken en helpt ze iedereen om aan de hand van zes kernwaarden hun eigen grit-factor te bepalen: hoop, inspanning, precisie, passie, rituelen en prioriteiten. Grit gaat voorbij aan clichés als ‘succes is vooral hard werken’ en biedt een frisse en motiverende manier om zelf ongekende resultaten te behalen.

De meeste mensen laten zich gemakkelijk onderbreken en besteden een groot deel van de dag aan oppervlakkige werkzaamheden. Dit boek bevat talloze inspirerende verhalen en praktische adviezen over hoe je je werk anders kunt organiseren om diep werk een vaste plek te geven.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Brené Brown beschrijft in haar boek wat het betekent om je kwetsbaar op te stellen in een wereld die gericht is op perfectionisme en het nemen van risico’s zonder dat succes gegarandeerd is. Of het nu om werk, relaties of opvoeding gaat: het is eng en moeilijk om je kwetsbaar op te stellen, maar het is nog veel moeilijker om het niet te doen en jezelf af te blijven vragen: wat als ik het wel had geprobeerd? We verwachten van onszelf en van anderen dat we elke dag de schijn ophouden om anderen te laten zien hoe goed we alles voor elkaar hebben. Kwetsbaarheid is een emotie waar bijna niemand zich prettig bij voelt. We associëren het met onzekerheid en risico’s. Toch zegt Brené Brown dat juist kwetsbaarheid de basis is van alle mooie dingen in het leven als liefde, vertrouwen en vreugde. Ze moedigt de lezer in De kracht van kwetsbaarheid aan om perfectionisme te laten varen, kwetsbaarheid en te omarmen en uitdagingen aan te gaan.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: We ervaren dagelijks hoe we dankzij slimme zoektermen op Google een bijna oneindig geheugen hebben. Uit onderzoek blijkt dat intensieve gebruikers van Twitter en Facebook voor bepaalde onderwerpen een vorm van intuïtie, ook wel ‘ambient awareness’, ontwikkelen die tien jaar geleden nog onbekend was. Wetenschappers gebruiken software om denkstappen te maken die met alleen hun hersenen onmogelijk zouden zijn. En miljoenen mensen blijken het schrijven van een e-mail te gebruiken om hun gedachten te ordenen. In We worden steeds slimmer laat Clive Thompson zien dat onze denkwerelden rijker en complexer worden naarmate we meer op techniek vertrouwen. We leren en onthouden meer, nemen de wereld om ons heen anders waar en hebben zelfs totaal nieuwe gedachten. Thompson vertelt hoe we smartphones, social media, zoekmachines, tekstverwerkers en nog talloze andere technologieën kunnen gebruiken om de capaciteit van onze hersenen te vergroten. Zo kunnen we een samenwerkingsverband aangaan met de schaakcomputer, of een soort extern geheugen aanleggen – net als een 76-jarige miljonair die digitaal letterlijk alles opneemt wat er in zijn leven gebeurt. Volgens Thompson zijn we bij elke technologische innovatie bang dat ons leven nooit meer hetzelfde zal zijn. Maar net als in het verleden leren we hoe we het nieuwe kunnen gebruiken en houden we vast aan wat goed is van het oude. We worden steeds slimmer presenteert in heldere taal een vernieuwend perspectief op het heden en de toekomst. Want ook onze huidige wereld is ooit sciencefiction geweest.
