World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea-the power of our mindset. Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success-but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

The updated edition of the book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset. After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own. Praise for Mindset “A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success “An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick “One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock “If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start 2.0

Remember a time when you and your mate weren’t too tired for romance? When you could take off on the spur of the moment for a glamorous evening or sexy weekend? Before listening for the patter of little feet put a damper on lovemaking? Believe it or not, you’re about to recapture the rapture! From the New York Times bestselling author of the runaway hit Light His Fire and number-one Light Her Fire comes a new self-help guide for men and women that fills a universal need. In How Can We Light a Fire When the Kids Are Driving Us Crazy?, love expert Ellen Kreidman conclusively proves that passion and parenthood can go hand in hand. Through observations, success stories, and techniques that have come out of her famous seminars, she shows married couples exactly how to light their fires and achieve the greatest possible level of emotional and sexual fulfillment. According to Kreidman, rekindling the sparks begins by acknowledging three core principles: • If you don’t have an affair with your mate, you risk the possibility that someone else will. • The best gift you can ever give your children is having a lasting relationship with your partner. • The happiest, most well-adjusted children come from a home in which the parents love each other. From that springboard, How Can We Light a Fire When the Kids Are Driving Us Crazy? goes on to offer sage advice and creative suggestions that encourage moms and dads to be loving partners, too—from homework assignments that teach you, your mate, and your children how to become better and more sensitive communicators, through a genuinely innovative list of “fifty-one ways to light a fire,” to two pages of stickers for scheduling and anticipating romantic rendezvous. And the Parents’ and Children’s Bills of Rights will keep the home fires burning while preventing meltdown. Whether the problem is finding a capable baby-sitter, the advisability of letting the kids into your bed, or discovering the best places to make love (home is the least arousing), you’ll find a wealth of effective answers here. Filled with the wit, compassion, and basic smarts that are Ellen Kreidman’s trademarks, How Can We Light a Fire When the Kids Are Driving Us Crazy? can make a marvelous difference in family happiness and harmony—as it restores the sizzle of courtship to married life.
