Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck: oh look, another reference to Mindset! Didn’t I talk about this last week? And the week before that? And the month before that? I read this about two years ago and I credit this book with completely changing my relationship with feedback and my personal level of confidence. We humans are capable of extraordinary things, but the biggest blocker we must overcome is our own mindset.
I need to show some restraint in answering this because I could go on for hours talking about books. As I said a few weeks ago, I’m learning to shift my perspective on the value of reading from How many books did I finish? to How much do I retain from each book? Towards that goal, here are my top reads as measured by how often I recall or reference something from that book. (Of course, there is definitely some recency bias here!)
