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 jeopardise success.

Let me ask you a quick question: imagine what it would be like to be able to control and manipulate anyone you want. How does it feel? Well, that's exactly the purpose of this book: to give you a series of ideas, strategies, and techniques that you can use immediately to control minds....

A lazy and confusing book quoting ver batum long lists....outdated examples, bordering on sexist. Listed types of manipulation but not how to identify it or adopt the trchniques.... I wasn't sure what the purpise was in the end.... Did not live up to the summary listing...

None of us ever agreed on the exact beginning. Was it when we started drawing the chalk figures, or when they started to appear on their own? Was it the terrible accident? Or when they found the first body?

Do you need my help? It was always the first question he asked. They called him when they had nowhere else to turn. Raised and trained as part of a top-secret programme, he was sent to the worst places in the world to do things his government denied any knowledge of. Then he broke with the programme and disappeared. But now someone's on his tail. Someone who knows he was once known simply as Orphan X.

The story is great. I really struggled with the narrator though. He seemed to dramafy everything. Long pauses and just too much ergency and mrnace in his voice. It let the book down.
