About the Summary

There are many ways in which we describe “grit” that we observe in everyday life. It is a “never give up attitude.” Author Angela Duckworth operates under the assumption that “in the long run, grit may matter more than talent” and has the scientific evidence to back it up. And she doesn’t stop there. Her research has shown that grit is liable to change and fluctuate, not fixed and therefore, it can be grown. In Grit, Duckworth summarizes all that she has researched and learned about grit so that you can apply it to your own calling in life.
