Book Notes written by Ryan Pijai
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. Angela Duckworth is a professor of psychology at University of Pennsylvania. She has advised the White House, the World Bank, NBA and NFL teams, and Fortune 500 CEOs. She has also given a TED Talk on Grit that can be found here.
