Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people — at work, at school, at home. It is wrong. As Daniel H. Pink explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our won lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and the world.
Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.
Sigh, yet another book that tries to tell us some half-truths, that we're supposed to superimpose on our daily lives, based on unclear writing, bullshitting and conclusions that have no real data to support them…
Buy some toilet paper with some inspirational writings instead, as this will probably teach you more than this book.
