Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
In her instant, multi-month 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).

The daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Angela Duckworth is now a celebrated researcher and professor. It was her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience that led to her hypothesis about what really drives success: not genius, but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.

In Grit, she takes us into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, 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 New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.

“Duckworth’s ideas about the cultivation of tenacity have clearly changed some lives for the better” (The New York Times Book Review). Among Grit’s most valuable insights: any effort you make ultimately counts twice toward your goal; grit can be learned, regardless of IQ or circumstances; when it comes to child-rearing, neither a warm embrace nor high standards will work by themselves; how to trigger lifelong interest; the magic of the Hard Thing Rule; and so much more. 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. This is “a fascinating tour of the psychological research on success” (The Wall Street Journal).

Grit (Spanish Edition)
La clave del exito no es el talento ni la suerte, como siempre hemos creido. La clave del exito es una mezcla de pasion, perseverancia y coraje: «grit». La obra de Angela Duckworth, profesora de psicologia y pionera en su campo, ha revolucionado el panorama cultural y cientifico al demostrar, con estudios contrastados cientificamente, que el exito en la vida tiene poco que ver con la inteligencia y mucho con el autocontrol, la perseverancia y la capacidad de levantarse despues de una caida. Triunfamos cuando nos dedicamos en cuerpo y alma a objetivos que nos hacen felices y nos apasionan. La buena noticia es que la determinacion puede cultivarse. Padres, estudiantes, educadores, atletas y todos aquellos que quieran alcanzar la excelencia o ayudar a otros a alcanzarla encontraran en esta obra la informacion, la ciencia, los ejemplos y el aliento que precisan. / Pioneering psychologist 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.

[Grit Audiobook][GRIT Audio CD][Angela Duckworth GRIT] The Power of Passion and Perseverance Audio CD by Angela Duckworth
In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, 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.

Garra. O Poder da Paixão e da Perseverança (Em Portuguese do Brasil)

Neste livro obrigatório para todos que desejam alcançar o sucesso, a psicóloga Angela Duckworth demonstra para pais, estudantes, educadores, atletas e empreendedores que o segredo para realizações incríveis não é o talento, mas uma mistura de paixão e perseverança que ela chama de "garra" - a capacidade de perseverar e produzir resultados além do puro talento, da sorte ou das eventuais derrotas.

Ao usar como exemplo a própria história como filha de um cientista que, com frequência, notava sua falta de "genialidade", Duckworth, agora professora e pesquisadora renomada, descreve as primeiras revelações que a levaram à hipótese de que não é a "genialidade" que realmente conduz ao sucesso, mas uma combinação especial de paixão e perseverança.

Em ''Garra'', ela cita o caso dos cadetes que se esforçam em seus primeiros dias na Academia Militar de West Point e de professores que trabalham nas escolas mais difíceis de lecionar dos Estados Unidos. Destaca conceitos e insights fascinantes buscados tanto na história quanto nos mais modernos experimentos sobre alta performance e, finalmente, compartilha com o leitor o que aprendeu ao entrevistar dezenas de pessoas bem-sucedidas nos mais diversos campos de atuação: do CEO do J. P. Morgan a um cartunista da The New Yorker e um treinador da National Football League, entre outros.

Pessoal e inspirador, capaz de transformar vidas, Garra é um livro sobre o que se passa na cabeça das pessoas durante as derrotas e como isso - não o talento ou a sorte - pode fazer toda a diferença.

坚毅
《坚毅》很多人认为,成功的要素在于智商与情商。但宾夕法尼亚大学心理学副教授安杰拉•达克沃思通过研究发现,坚毅的品质对成功起到了关键性的作用。 达克沃思教授从2007年开始对"坚毅"(GRIT)进行研究,她的研究成果已发布在美国各大学术杂志上。她认为,坚毅比天赋更能预测一个人未来的表现。在遇到挫折、失败时,仍能坚持不懈地朝着自己的目标努力,这才是决定长期成功的因素。 本书基于大量研究案例,同时也引用了作者的亲身经历及她采访过的诸多坚毅典范,包括商业精英、艺术家、教育家、运动员及军事家等。事实证明,我们不仅可以通过训练提高自己的坚毅指数,而且应该从孩子的教育阶段就开始重视坚毅品质的培养,比如多让孩子参加课外活动,并且一定要让他们在某项课外活动中坚持一年以上的时间。 本书能够让我们看到关于成功的另一面,那就是:发现自己的兴趣所在,找到自己的人生使命,在挫败中不断磨炼自己,成为一个坚毅的人,拥有自己想要的生活。

Anthropoi Me Kotsia / ΑΝΘΡΩΠΟΙ ΜΕ ΚΟΤΣΙΑ
ος 'Αντζελα Ντάκγουορθ απευθύνεται σε όσους θέλουν να πετύχουν -γονείς, φοιτητές, παιδαγωγούς, αθλητές και επιχειρηματίες. Βασισμένη στα προσωπικά της βιώματα, σε ιστορικά γεγονότα, έρευνες και πειράματα, αλλά και σε συνεντεύξεις με δεκάδες επιτυχημένους ανθρώπους, η Ντάκγουορθ καταλήγει σε ένα συμπέρασμα: Το μυστικό της επιτυχίας δεν είναι κάποιο ουρανοκατέβατο "ταλέντο" ή η εξαιρετική ευφυΐα. Είναι, απλώς, ένα χαρμάνι πάθους και επιμονής που η ίδια αποκαλεί "κότσια". Αυτό το διαφωτιστικό αλλά και διασκεδαστικό βιβλίο θα σας απαντήσει: - Γιατί όποια προσπάθεια καταβάλλετε για να πετύχετε τον στόχο σας μετράει τελικά διπλά; - Πώς μπορείτε να αποκτήσετε κότσια, ανεξάρτητα από τον δείκτη ευφυΐας ή τις συνθήκες ζωής σας; - Πότε η εξάσκηση γίνεται βασανιστήριο και πότε είναι απόλαυση; - Τι είναι ο Κανόνας των Δύσκολων Πραγμάτων; Η Ντάκγουορθ φιλοδοξεί να σας αλλάξει τη ζωή και αποδεικνύει ότι δεν είναι το ταλέντο ή η τύχη αλλά τα κότσια που κάνουν τη διαφορά.
