A very interesting read. He doesn't successfully make his case at the outset, but builds up steam as he goes along and makes it much more convincing and concrete. As with many books of this genre, each chapter can be exploded into libraries of work. Still, despite its brevity, he parlays his theories in full. The coda is quite entertaining as well, with ideas, workshops, summaries, pointers, talking-points and my favorite thing for an author to do: book recommendations. I'm happy to say I've read much of his list.

Review from World Cat:
Pink argues that the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.

Everything we think we know about human motivation, rewards and punishment is wrong and outdated. ( )

Some extraordinary insights into motivation. A must read for managers and a brilliant read for psychology lovers. ( )
