Difficult and Boring for anyone not having pyschology background
Reviewed in India on 31 December 2018
"Grit" was suggested to me for reading. My greatest takeaway from the book:
1.If you think of the overall well-being of people around you, you tend to be more successful in the long run
2.Deliberate practice makes you better at a skill
3.While learning something different, the first stage of introduction needs to be interesting and playful, strenuous efforts are required at a later stage
For finding these takeaways, you need to pass through the vast jungle of psychology study and data. On certain occasions it feels like research has been done for certain evident things also. This makes it boring on certain occasions.
However, it is an intelligent book challenging conventional wisdom and places the required prerogative on the importance of efforts above everything else.
