Publisher's Summary

Use the science of motivation with the power of game design to unlock motivation and drive progress in your organisation. There are two conventional ways to approach motivation: set goals and try to change attitudes and beliefs (which takes a lot of personalised effort); or develop incentives and rewards to inspire effort (which takes a lot of money).

This book shows you how to take a third new approach - designing the work itself to be inherently motivating. Combining the best elements of three distinct fields - motivational science, game design, and agile management - this book shows you how to positively influence behaviour through better work and project design.

This game-changing book: Gives you a refreshing science-based approach to the classic challenge of motivation in the workplace and is ideal for any leader or manager looking to take their workplace culture in a new direction. The Game Changer includes practical advice for creating highly productive, motivated, and innovative teams.

Motivation strategy and design expert, Dr. Jason Fox, consults on leadership and change management to a wide range of clients - from the executives of multinational organisations, through to the directors of switched-on startups. The Game Changer  will show you how to unlock creative, productive, and collaborative work. It is the perfect resource for forward-thinking leaders in organisations and teams focused on crafting a work culture that gets the best out of their people.

Narration won't let me appreciate content.

The narration style is very annoying to me. Sounds like a robot when he makes. Pauses. When. Talking.

It was really distracting from the content. I would love to have the option to chose another narrator.

Sack of whining drivel

Author is no expert and book is pure shit. Does not deserve any further critique.

Great content (if u survive the first 3 chapters) , beautifully read

Even though the first three chapters take a lot of determination to get through - replete with management speak and lots of smart one liners - the book really blossoms into something of its own after that. A great read with lots of good and practical advice after that.

Brilliantly read aswell that makes the audiobook very energising and inspiring.

few good points

once you pass the first 3 extremely poorly written chapters it's easier and faster to listen. few really good points you probably knew already just in right context it makes better sense.

Worth a listen to...

I got about 50% through this audio book, then bought the hard copy so I could make notes and reinforce my learning. There’s a lot to grasp and luckily I have been listening to a lot of books on this subject so I was able to access the ideas.

He mentions a number of strategies, and within an hour or two of listening I implemented them to test their effectiveness.

So far I’m impressed.

Going to listen to his next book Quest now to reinforce what I’ve learned so far...

Could have been summarised within an hour

Unfortunately terribly narrated and the story had minimal good points. I strongly urge Roger Davis to look for a different career and not ever read a motivational type book out loud again.
I will be seeking a motivational book to inspire me from the demoting marathon I just pushed through. No disrespect intended to Jason Fox, but I’m extremely dissatisfied that in his pursuit of perfection and editing he wasn’t able to ‘liberate the bore and control repetition’!
I don’t think that I ever want to see or hear the words “game changer” again... must have been used at least 500 times throughout.
If you must get the book for whatever sad reason... start from chapter 6 and and feel free to skip through certain parts. I wouldn’t even worry about the last chapter.

Dr Jason Fox is awesome

And this book delivers all it promises to. I have the hard copy and the audio and I am always dipping into it.

Worst read audio of all time!!!

I have read this book and it is excellent but the reader of this audiobook is atrocious!!! This is read in a way that a fictional story or children's book should be read with over the top emphasis in all the wrong places. I couldn't listen for more than 2 minutes as the method by which it is read is over the top, distracting, has peaks and points in all the wrong places.

Terrible, just terrible!!!!!
