Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us


We recommend this…

if you are trying to motivate others, eg. as a manager, teacher, support worker, coach or organiser, or if you are personally struggling to muster any drive and motivation in your work, studies or other undertakings.

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.


Publisher’s description

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.
