My review might be slightly unfair, since I had somewhat rigid expectations. But what I expected was something a lot more instructional, and this book is way too story-heavy. For example, a bunch of stories were told about the tribal experiment failing, but without pointing out what should have happened instead. Listening felt like an exercise in frustration. To be fair, there might yet be a section where this is specified, but even so, the build up is way too long.

Every day we work hard to motivate ourselves, the people we live with, the people who work for and do business with us. In this way much of what we do can be defined as being motivators. From the boardroom to the living room, our role as motivators is complex, and the more we try to motivate partners and children, friends and coworkers, the clearer it becomes that the story of motivation is far more intricate and fascinating than we've assumed.

The book is kind of a long winded way of reiterating that intrinsic motivation is stronger than extrinsic motivation which is something you learn in an intro psych class; but the stories are nice :)
