What Motivates Me describes different factors that motivate people at their jobs, and things anyone can do to adjust their current job to fit with their passions. It is helpful information for anyone who wants to find a job they will really enjoy.
There's an assessment test you can take online to identify your motivators. However, you need a unique login code which comes in an envelope with the book to take the test, and since I got this book from the library the code wasn't included and I couldn't take the test. I was quite annoyed that the assessment wasn't included in the book, or on a website that anyone reading the book could access. You can read the descriptions of the different motivators, and by thinking about what you've liked or disliked about past jobs, get a good idea of what applies to you, but it would be nice to be able tot take the assessment since the whole point of the book is to identify what motivates you.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0996029702, Hardcover)

What Motivates Me will help readers align the work they do every day, for the rest of their lives, with what truly motivates them. It also includes a code to the Motivators Assessment. This is not a personality test, but a scientifically valid assessment that digs straight to the core of what motivates you at work. The book also features a set of thought-provoking exercises to help readers sculpt their jobs with 60 powerful strategies.

After analyzing the results of 850,000 interviews, the authors sought to discover why so many people are not as engaged and energized as they could be at work. They found those who are happiest and most successful are engaged in work that aligns with what motivates them. What Motivates Me offers an extensively tested method to help readers identify their core motivators and figure out the disconnects between their passions and their current work, and guides all those searching for joy and engagement by asking the important questions - “What motivates me?” and “What can I do about it?”
