You Are Awesome

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Wren & Rook

Written with verve and humour, this encouraging book is a manual on growth mindset that is appropriate for pre-teens or teenagers. The author is a world champion table-tennis player (as well as the author of bestselling books for adults), and he uses his own experience to explain how your mindset can help you achieve whatever you want, or, alternatively, hold you back.

The book emphasises the importance of practice, the myth of talent, and explains how to train your mind into a positive, growth mindset, all in a readable, funny and accessible way. The book could be useful to many children, as well as to many adults, and schools would certainly benefit from having it in their library and perhaps even planning library lessons around it.

The examples given include growth mindset for tests and exams, as well as for improving at sport. All in all, highly recommended for encouraging your children or pupils to take a more positive, proactive attitude to their lives.
