    "Great read for parents & educators"
    Where does Drive rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    9/10


    What other book might you compare Drive to and why?

    I'd have to say it is most like Freakanomics. Both are nonfiction and discuss what motivates people. Both are very enjoyable and thought-provoking.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Never pay a child for good grades!


    Any additional comments?

    I will listen to this book multiple times and I recommend it to every parent, professional and, particularly, to educators.

    "So Much More Than You Might Think"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book teaches you truths about motivation and it applies to more than just motivating employees. It applies to everything we do in life. I actually bought the audio version as well as the book version. I have listened to the audio book at least twice and bought the book because I wanted to refer to concepts that resonate so deeply with me. They, I'm not exactly sure who "They" are...but they say that "The teacher appears when the student is ready"...I was so ready for this book! Thank you Daniel Pink for assembling such clear, and concise information!

    Story
    "thought provoking"

    The author talks with passion and with reference to a wealth of research on a number of aspects of motivation.
    It goes against an lot of perceived wisdom and current business practise, but it all makes sense and flows very well.
    I found myself agreeing with the author on most things, but then again I am right brained myself.

    It may help to have an introductory knowledge of motivation theories, NLP, left /right brain science but its not essential.

    I will certainly seek out other works by Daniel pink and other authors he references, particularly the Hungarian whose name I can neither pronounce or spell.

    "Monotonous and Boring"

    Ive had this for 8 months now and haven't finished it. The narrator's constant drone is dull and the content gets lost. Not for me although if you like facts and figures then give it a go as I'm sure it's quite interesting and the subject matter important.

    "so good"

    This book is easy to follow with clear explanations of motivations. The reader engages the listener well and the end of the book has some valuable. useful and thoughtful considerations. I used this book to assist me in my Masters assignment on leadership and management strategies. I really enjoyed listening and found it valuable in my daily life as well as in my studies, I would recommend this read/listen :)
