This book could have easily been summed up in an article but instead it's a 240+ page book repeating essentially the same thing over and over and over. The book is about how your mindset, fixed or open, to challenges, beliefs, and overall life can have a great impact on how you adjust and what you become. As an example, if two children get an F on an assignment with different mindsets, the fixed will tend to think they're dumb and lose interest while the open will know they can learn and view it as a challenge.
That's it. I'm not being overly critical of the book or idea. That is the book stretched out using examples from sports, business, relationships, and pretty much areas where your mindset can help determine where you proceed when faced with a challenge.
I don't know how someone could give this five stars. I don't mean that to be rude but you're more or less reading the same idea on every page.
