Product description


Pink makes a convincing case that organizations ignore intrinsic motivation at their peril.
-Scientific American

Persuasive . . .Harnessing the power of intrinsic motivation rather than extrinsic remuneration can be thoroughly satisfying and infinitely more rewarding.
-Miami Herald

These lessons are worth repeating, and if more companies feel emboldened to follow Mr. Pink's advice, then so much the better.
-Wall Street Journal

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

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.

Pink's deft traversal of research at the intersection of psychology and economics make this a worthwhile read-no sticks necessary.

[Pink] continues his engaging exploration of how we work.
-Inc. Magazine

Pink's a gifted writer who turns even the heaviest scientific study into something digestible-and often amusing-without losing his intellectual punch.
-New York Post

A worthwhile read. It reminds us that those of us on the right side of the brain are driven furthest and fastest in pursuit of what we love.
-Minneapolis Star Tribune

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

Important reading...an integral addition to a growing body of literature that argues for a radical shift in how businesses operate.

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 Owners Manual

Reviewed in the United States on 22 June 2019
Give people control over their own tasks, and they will enjoy and do them well.

There. I just saved you $10.

I was furious reading this book and feel utterly cheated.

Of 270 some odd pages, only 140 are the actual book. The rest are discussion questions, summaries of other books, a lengthy sample of another book, etc.

Even the content on the first 140 is drawn out and ridiculous. (The author’s imagined thought process: Blackberries are sooo corporate; here’s a funny joke about them! Motivational systems are like computer operating system! Look how hip and up to date I am!).

I was hoping for information about how to motivate myself, but the book is focused toward managers and business.
