"In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, athletes, students, and business people--both seasoned and new--that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called "grit." Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur "genius" Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments. Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not "genius" but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. As a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Duckworth created her own "character lab" and set out to test her theory. Here, she takes readers into the field to visit teachers working in some of the toughest schools, cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she's learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers--from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to the cartoon editor of The New Yorker to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that--not talent or luck--makes all the difference"--… (mais)

Good stuff here. Yes, some of it is repetitive; she’s done a LOT of research on the topic, and there’s a lot to say. I don’t see myself as a particularly gritty person, so I really appreciated how she talked about developing grit for yourself, and also in context of parenting and teaching and how to develop grit in your kids. The hows ranged from general to specific, but I think I’ve found a few things to try at home. ( )

I'm always a little suspicious of pop psych books. As a social science student, I think the hype around the idea that come out books like this can overwhelm the rigors of normal replication and peer review methods. In this book, it does seem like the author is aware of current limitation in the theory as it is now and is very willing to work with other researchers in her field, which I really appreciate.

I also, in this case, don't really care if everything about the girt theory ends up being completely correct. I know that in order to learn, I must fail. To me, this is the most important part of grit. It's not about whether you have it, or how you can get more. This is the most crucial element to me because it is so contrary to how we've structured our society. I'm a college student right now and I'm in the honors college. I want to go to grad school some day. This means if I need to keep my GPA up if I want to graduate with high honors and get into a good grad school. There is not a lot of places I feel like I can fail in college. I need to be great right away to get the best grade I can. It is pretty well observed that I'm not the only student that feels that way. It is well document that the need to get a high GPA prevents students from taking risks and causes students to avoid harder or more challenging classes. I have tried to skirt around this by taking a different PE class every semester. I can fail in these classes. I can be bad at the sport at first and then see myself improve. As long as I show up and do the work, I will get an A. I don't know if this is necessarily the best way to conduct our other classes but I do know that the grading system in my PE class makes it much more likely that I will challenge myself and try something new.

I like the idea of grit because it encourages this failing to learn behavior. Maybe all the science isn't in yet, but I'll be interested me see how this theory will continue to develop. I hope that maybe someday the world will change to fit this model more and allow us more opportunities to fail without getting punished for taking that risk. ( )

If a non-fiction book is really good, I can't stop talking about it. This book was informative. But I wasn't constantly talking my friends'/husband's ear off about it. I think it is a good idea that might not yet be finished. ( )

Lots of great stories, but would benefit from more clear practical applications for parents ( )

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.
