Drive: The Surprising Truth about What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink.. Taking us beyond the carrot and stick, Pink expertly –– but without cant –– assesses the real things that give us meaning, purpose and ambition in life. Drawing on groundbreaking research begun decades ago by a team at the University of Rochester, this book will energize you.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"In the book Drive, business writer Daniel H. Pink argues persuasively that these companies have it all wrong. He cites a body of behavioral science research that suggests that optimal performance comes when people find intrinsic meaning in their work.."

Scientific American

"According to Pink (A Whole New Mind), everything we think we know about what motivates us is wrong. He pits the latest scientific discoveries about the mind against the outmoded wisdom that claims people can only be motivated by the hope of gain and the fear of loss. ."
