Decent book on perseverance and focus. Focus on word grit annoyed me personally, along with focus on extremes in regards to grit with studies of high achievers. Life is about balance, which she quickly mentions in her conclusion, but dismisses. Having a balanced set of goals for life is important to happiness.
Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. ( )

What a book! This was really interesting. I learned a fair amount of what it takes to be a success.

I always considered myself pretty gritty, but this is showing me that I am only moderate. I now am going to aspire to become grittier!

I am definitely going to start recommending this book. ( )

I really enjoyed Grit! Yes, some of the theories are rehashed from other popular books, research studies and TED Talks, but the information here is sound. I've been immersing myself in content dealing with the myth of talent precisely because I grew up in a household where natural talent was EVERYTHING, and you either had it in a particular field, or you didn't. Having found myself two decades later attempting to make a living at something I was deemed entirely untalented in, I'm eager to learn as much as I can about overcoming this deficit to become successful.

Duckworth's research is sound, as are her conclusions. I would have liked more practical tips and suggestions for growing grit, but the advice that exists in the book is solid and relevant. The stories got a bit tedious toward the end, and it seemed as though Duckworth kept trying to convince us of the value of grit despite the fact that readers who got to that point would very likely already be on board with the central premise.

Overall, I got a lot out of this book and I particularly enjoyed the chapter on parenting. Although I have to admit, I wish I'd read this book when I was in college! I feel like I seriously missed the boat by not implementing Duckworth's suggestions as an adolescent or young adult. However, she does maintain that it's never too late to grow your grit, which is what I'm attempting to do now.

The themes explored in Grit also sparked some interesting date night discussions with my husband, which is always the mark of a powerful read! ( )

One of the best non-fiction books I have read this year. If I had to recco just only one book for the year 2016, this would be one. It connects the theme from all of my favourite behavioural scientists, Anders Ericsson, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Carol Dweck in a perfect manner. It is fantastically written too. Highly recommend it. ( )

I discovered Angela Duckworth on the Armchair Expert podcast, loved her episode and forgot about her book. Thankfully the audiobook is read by her (she does a great job!) and is filled with lots of helpful info. If you've ever felt like you haven't reached your potential in any area of life (not just work, etc.) this is a great read for establishing practical steps for moving forward and working towards goals. She also includes helpful info for parents who want to guide their children towards reaching their potential too, in a logical and reasonable way. ( )

Nobody wants to show you the hours and hours of becoming. They'd rather show the highlight of what they’ve become.

Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.
Growing up, I heard the word genius a lot.
Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another.
There are no shortcuts to excellence. Developing real expertise, figuring out really hard problems, it all takes time―longer than most people imagine….you’ve got to apply those skills and produce goods or services that are valuable to people….Grit is about working on something you care about so much that you’re willing to stay loyal to it…it’s doing what you love, but not just falling in love―staying in love.
as much as talent counts, effort counts twice.
