I thought this was a really excellent book: easy to listen to, new information that was useful and interesting. The author does a good job narrating.
I liked this book very much and have recommended it to my daughters to read - I think it will make them better managers at work and better mothers for my grandsons.
Fascinating book that provided a whole new perpsective for me on what motivates people at work and in every day life. It also gave me insight into my own way of thinking and why I enjoy certain activities and work environments over others. Self-awareness can be a very powerful thing and this book really did that for me.

New twist on behavior and motivation. I really liked the comparisons of Motivation 1.0 to the industrial age and Motivation 2.0 to the information age. He offers suggestions for where education needs to go that I believe are headed in the right directions.As an educator of 30 + years, I understand what he is trying to show the slowly changing world of education but realize that these changes will take a long time to occur. This is a good read and most informative while filled with humor and easy to understand.
The author makes some excellent, clear, and factual arguments about the simple truth of SUCCESS - that personal and societal achievment are best cultivated under a home, school, or work environment that promotes autonomy, mastry, and purpose. Loved the software upgrade analogies! The larger points seem very much aligned to A.Maslow's Self-Actualization Theory. This book is a must-read for any manager, teacher, coach, or parent!
If you are going to take in one audiobook in your life, this is the one. Pink presents a succinct, compelling, innovation yet intuitive view of what makes us tick. With an excellent story-telling ethic and an eye to the practical implications for everyday life, this is worth the effort!
It wasn't that bad of a book, I just had to read over short periods. It would start putting me to sleep, so I had to do a chapter at a time. If you get broad easy, this isn't the book for you
