  • Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

    Rs. 2,390.00

    Angela Duckworth

     

    • JP MORGAN’S BEST SUMMER READ OF 2016
    • New York Times bestseller
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2016)

     

    In this instant New York Times bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.” “Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere” (People).

     

    Grit delves into the personal ingredients of great success. It’s worth reading…the gist is that talent and skill are less valuable than effort.” —Andrew Ross Sorkin, The New York Times

     

    “It really isn’t talent but practice—along with passion—that makes perfect, explains psychologist Duckworth in this illuminating book. Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere.” —People

     

    “[Have] no doubt: Grit is great. It’s a lucid, informative, and entertaining review of the research Angela has assiduously conducted over the past decade or so. The book also includes suggestions on how to develop grit, and how we can help support grit in others. There are few people who wouldn’t learn something from this book.” Scientific American (blog)

     

    “Duckworth is the researcher most associated with the study and popularization of grit.  And yet what I like about her new book, Grit, is the way she is pulling away from the narrow, joyless intonations of that word, and pointing us beyond the way many schools are now teaching it…Most important, she notes that the quality of our longing matters.  Gritty people are resilient and hard working, sure.  But they also, she writes, know in a very, very deep way what it is they want.” —David Brooks, New York Times

     

    “Offers invaluable lessons to business leaders, parents, recruiters, and almost anyone who wishes to have a roadmap to achieve greater levels of success.” —Forbes

    If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset. – Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start

     

    A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow.

This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine. – Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Education and Psychology at Yale University
