A quick summary
Drive by Daniel Pink contains extremely important information that is surprisingly little-known. Managers, teachers, parents and politicians are routinely offering the wrong types of incentives, and misunderstanding the results. People are unknowingly killing their own drive and motivation. Drive sets out what the research shows about how it actually works and gives heartening examples of what happened when this understanding gets put into practice. Pink has the knack of distilling down large amounts of research into readable and digestible writing. This makes Drive an easy read but a vital one.
