Product description

Review

"Daniel Pink has issued a bold and persuasive call to bring our understanding of human motivation out of the realm of folklore and into the realm of science ... Drive will make you rethink everything you do to motivate yourself and those around you." (Richard Wiseman, author of 59 Seconds and Quirkology)

"What really drives high performance? In this eye-opening book, Daniel Pink draws on 40 years of science to offer some surprising answers. He shows the limits of carrots and sticks and explores the hard-headed power of autonomy, mastery, and purpose to help us work smarter and live better." (Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail and Free)

"Pink is rapidly acquiring international guru status . . . He is an engaging writer, who challenges and provokes." (Financial Times)

"As Dan Pink's new book Drive argues, financial incentives are no longer enough to give a business an edge: in an economy driven by ideas and creativity, it's more effective to give workers a sense of purpose, of mastery, of autonomy over their time and their tasks. Because the only certainty in the decade to come is that disruptive change is going to continue to catch out businesses that are unprepared." (David Rowan Daily Telegraph 2010-01-09)

"Drive drives a stake through the bedrock of classic "if-then" motivational theory. It demonstrates in an entertaining way how self-motivated rewards provide their own behavioural alchemy, exposing the mismatch between what science knows and business does." (James Borg, author of PERSUASION: THE ART OF INFLUENCING PEOPLE)

"Drive is the rare book that will get you to think and inspire you to act. Pink makes a strong, science-based case for rethinking motivation - and then provides the tools you need to transform your life." (Dr Mehmet Oz, co-author of YOU: THE OWNER'S MANUAL)

"Pink's ideas deserve a wide hearing. Corporate boards, in fact, could do well by kicking out their pay consultants for an hour and reading Pink's conclusions instead." (Forbes)

"Fascinating . . . If Pink's proselytizing helps persuade employers to make work more fulfilling, Drive will be a powerhouse." (USA Today)

"Pink's analysis-and new model-of motivation offers tremendous insight into our deepest nature." (Publishers Weekly)

"Pink makes a convincing case that organizations ignore intrinsic motivation at their peril." (Scentific American)
