Book Review
My take on the book
Overall Rating
Readability Score
The author wrote this book after a lot of research and experience and this is clear from the writing style, comments and references. She knows her stuff. A real practical book about learning and GROWING the right mindset in life. She refers throughout the book about the "fixed mindset" and the "growth mindset" and explains the difference very well. We all struggle with our mindsets I guess, and this book helped me a lot to make more sense of it. I will read it again in future. Here and there a little bit repetitive, but I enjoyed it right till the end!
