How could I resist asking for a book called You Are Awesome? Turns out I am so glad I did. Matthew Syed author and former international table tennis champion has written this excellent, visually appealing and highly readable book.
In it he breaks down the difference being being average and being ordinary - and though there are plenty of big names scattered through out the book, he is at pains to paint the real story of how they got to where they are. There are sections of famous failures and what people see and what the reality is.
The book is a great exploration, at a upper primary to lower high school level, of the growth mindset. It has plenty of great tips along the way.
This is a book I will be recommending to our school library and encouraging my children and teachers I work with to read.
A timely, well written and challenging (must persevere more!) book to read.
