I loved this little, informative book. The subject matter of “The Power of Passion and Perseverance” can be used in every aspect of life through every age. It is a synopsis of the book Grit by Angela Duckworth. The reason I bought it, was I wanted to understand the “meat” of the title without reading the whole, detailed book, to get to the conclusions. This book did that.
I have a life long habit of collecting quotes and summary outlines of things I have read because personal and professional growth matters! I love the work of Angela Duckworth because of the depth of hope it inspires in me this older guy, to continue to pursue lifelong dreams. As an extremely busy HR professional and father, time is tight. This "In a Nutshell" summary provided everything I needed in a summary: memorable quotes, a chapter summary and key takeaways for application. Thank you Nutshell people - I am indebted to you!
I like the way this book is laid out. Easy to understand concepts and cuts right to the ‘grit’ of the information. The Key Takeaways at the end of each chapter help me summarize and remember what I just read. I will take Angela Duckworths advise and go over the Key Takeaways each week. I feel like I have grit and can continue to develop it.
Thank you for this summary. We have a 13 year old swimmer bound for the 2024 Olympics. He is abled body. He has natural talent, but a weak and immature mind. This summary is our first tool to begin teaching him how to think like a gold medalist Olympian.
