Two books by Dr. Carol S. Dweck, a Stanford University psychology professor, have given Dave insight into the course of his baseball career and were important aids as he was writing his memoir.  

Dr. Dweck's book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success is written for the general public.  It presents her concepts clearly and tells how the reader can apply them.

Dr. Dweck's book Self-theories: Their Role in Motivation, Personality, and Development describes the research upon which her concepts are based.
