A book that will change how you think and transform how you live.
Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people – at work, at school, at home. It is wrong. As Daniel H. Pink explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, 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 the world. Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation, and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.

This was my first audiobook - I enjoyed it, but need to write things down. I found it hard to remember everything while listening in a car (nothing personal against this book - just love business ideas - but need to write them down)
yes. it will shape the future of the planet. Business, family relationships and our success as a species. This book will change the way you interact with your colleages and kids
How to get my kids to do chores.
Very clear voice and expression that draws you in. One of the most pleasant voices. Extremetly well researched and presented.
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.
Never pay a child for good grades!
I will listen to this book multiple times and I recommend it to every parent, professional and, particularly, to educators.
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!
Don't know - have not read the print.
Excellent book - really made me think about how I organize my classroom.
This guy knows his stuff. He is smart! But he could have said more in less time.
It was interesting.
I enjoyed the book, but didn't like the Operative System analogy in which most of the book is based. Otherwise it's good
Daniel is a wonderful narrator reading a fantastic book. His stories and lessons are well laid out and enjoyable. You will not regret buying this!
"Interesting, useful but to repetitive"
Liked the insights in the book. Stories were interesting but as I said a little too repetitive and business oriented.
"A definate must read!"
The subjects and studies that are discussed in this book are serious eye openers for respectable entrepreneurs and businesses owners. The book has a fast pace and as I listened to it while driving I feel I need to listen to it again with a pen and paper to write down specific learnings. I see it as a book of study and intellectual enrichment. And not as a story book to take lightly. I'm sure it will have a similar effect on you.
"A well considered motivation book"
A very interesting read. Well narrated by the author who has a good voice to listen to.
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.
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 :)
