I should have stopped & read this book sooner, but I finally did. Angela Duckworth makes such great insights! Cheers to the next generation!

When I see the word “grit”, I think of the food grits and start wondering if anyone still eats that stuff. 🥸

Cheshirecat913 I think of the food too and yes I eat grits on a regular basis. 😄 1y

I get so excited when the book I‘m reading mentions another book I‘ve read!! 🤩🤩

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It reads easy, felt like a conversation that answers specific questions that I had. There were many laughs and ‘aha‘ moments. The personal stories from ‘grit paragons‘ made it more practical and enjoyable. I get why most people say it‘s not for everyone though - it would be best for people in their formative years or 20s or people pursuing a goal. Many great lessons learned. 3.5/5

I‘m very pleased with the author for mentioning that not everyone has the luxury to quit their current job in pursuit of their passion. A lot of motivational speakers neglect this important point and call people lazy or complacent, without realising how much those people have to lose.

Does anybody else buy books when they‘re sad or am I a psychopath?

CaliforniaCay Books = medicine, I do the same, you're not crazy! Hope you feel better soon 🤗 2y
Santie @CaliforniaCay That is very true. I feel so much better already. Thank you 🌸 2y
Nute I often make a trip to the bookstore at the end of an ‘awful‘ day to seek the comfort of books. A book purchase is a healing balm.🙂 2y
Santie @Nute That does sound healing, yes 🙌 2y

I know a lot of people liked this, but I got absolutely nothing out of it. It reminded me why I hate self-help books so much. It‘s not going to tell you anything you don‘t already know. It merely serves to remind you of things you may have forgotten but are not revolutionary nuggets of knowledge. This book also screams “Asian Ivy League privilege,” so don‘t go into it thinking it‘s a one-size-fits-all deal.

This is a must read for every human. I wouldn‘t say it‘s the best book I‘ve every read but I believe the information inside has the potential to change the readers life for the better. Even if reading about psychology isn‘t your cup of tea I would still recommend brewing a pot on a Sunday morning and giving it a try.
