Carol Dweck

Today, I came across this interview with Malcom Gladwell. He is the author of the bestsellers The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference and Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking. In the interview he says:
"One of the most popular pieces I ever did relied very heavily on work done by Carol Dweck. [The piece Gladwell is referring to is “The Talent Myth” published in The New Yorker, July 22, 2002. Dweck is the William B. Ransford Professor of Psychology at Columbia University.] Carol Dweck deserves a big audience."
I agree with Malcom Gladwell. Carol Dweck's work deserves broad attention. I had the pleasure of doing an interview with her last year. You can read it here: The Growth Mindset.
