Excellent. I changed a few of my teaching methods because of ideas suggested in this book. ( )

I found the autonomy to be quite interesting to read and learn. I'm hoping this comes in to our company.

Mastery and Purpose are equally good as well. ( )

Read it as an audiobook which probably isn`t the best way to read it. ( )

I wish Pink would write a second version of this book, with examples of how non-profit & service organizations are adapting some of these ideas. It's an interesting thought experiment to imagine what a ROWE public library would look like, or what projects paraprofessional staff would spend their 20% time on. I read it specifically to think about how to craft self-paced trainings that could incorporate these principles. ( )
