The main fallback of this book is that Carol seems very set in people always being one or the other, you either have a fixed or growth mindset when it seems that there are pieces of each mindset that are displayed in everybody.
The book is a good read and I would recommend it to anyone looking to shift or improve their outlook.
The emphasis on this book is on the importance of character, effort and engaging purposefully in something because we love it and have a passion for it. The focus on self-development and self-improvement, as opposed to relying on 'innate talent' (which could set us up for failure eventually), is fundamentally freeing.
Great mind set that i plan to apply to all aspects of my life.
