So many books have come out that divide us into sharply separate groups, mindwise, and such a flood (but public likes them) that treat the new findings in brain, cognition, consciousness, personality changes, etc--that one has to be amazing to rate 5 stars. Well, but ...
So many books have come out that divide us into sharply separate groups, mindwise, and such a flood (but public likes them) that treat the new findings in brain, cognition, consciousness, personality changes, etc--that one has to be amazing to rate 5 stars. Well, but here she does it. Two radically different ways we can feel, think, plan, decide in the uncertainties of a lifetime. It is not really a 'self-help' book. The two life-ways described try to bring to the masses the new discoveries in how minds work, how we form our personalities and make decisions. Not just loose estimates but backed up by late scientific studies and tests. By an acknowledged professional. You will meet people who show these two patterns: 'growth mindset' vs 'fixed states mind' around you. And confront these two paths of destiny within! Also some are struggling to make a way and figure them out, balance them. You are included. Not a magic formula but a sober account to help you navigate in life's uncharted seas. And, the new findings on flexibility, how brain can change itself, we can change ourselves here show the good. A happy fate: a chance to reach our goals: that we can change both and confront life to win. Optimism, based on old guesses but lit up by scientific scrutiny. Wow.

Psy is a scam

Psychology and psychiatry are scams run by ripoff for revenge.

    Good Read

    This book came form a psychological perspective regarding 2 mindsets, the fixed mindset and the growth mindset. It talks about how to determine both, as well as how to deal with someone of either mindset. It also discusses how to change from a fixed to a growth mindset. The book discussed as well, that you have a growth mindset in one area and a fixed mindset in another. In the beginning of the book you can take a quiz to see your mindset. It's an easy enough read and will give to my teenagers to read.

    Good food for thought

    Very interesting. I will use some of the techniques with my kids. I skimmed over most of the business section because I am no longer in business but I love the overall philosophy of this book and think it is very helpful in life.
