Succinct and scientific

This was the shortest Audible title I have downloaded and its pithy conclusions mirror the scientific method I often see in repositories of abstracts filling my professional life. Now I will listen to the 90 minute version.

Dry, boring and about useless.

Book was highly recommended so I have to assume it's this synopsis that is poorly written and the robotic delivery made it worse.

The real book is a whole lot better

The analysis was nothing more than what Carol said herself and a lot of the importance of the whole message was lost in such a short piece.

One thing is good about this

In that it's over in roughly 30 minutes.

It's condensing a highly repetitive, low information book into a more digestible size.

If this had better source material to work with, it would've been better.

This summary saves the reader time of having to unfold the basic premise of personality types!

This summary and analysis of this book was to the point, refreshing as to content and well delivered! This actually saved me time! The Reader's Digest breakdown of this book provides the key points and take always without having to wade through the psychological mysteries of the mind!

Good reviews of Mindset, a book, not outstanding.

Mindset, the book is written with meaning and heart. If this book can motivate you to read Carol Dweck's book at least twice. then it has been beneficial. Mindset is a book to be studied, not just read once. This review of the original is good, but not a replacement for the real book by Carol Dweck in 2006.

It’s not the full book!

It’s not a full audiobook version, it’s just an introduction of the book chapters. Not happy with that!

Superior primer on mindset

Fascinating work on the topic of mindset. The author gives an easy-to-follow analysis on what a fixed mindset is, as well as an open mindset.
