Publisher's Summary

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.

Really interesting

This is great for Leaders or coaches of any kind, including teachers or parents.
I didn't enjoy the start, but then it got very very interesting and worthwhile!

A Worthwhile Look Into What Motivates Us

This book was much better than expected. there are some fascinating studies and methods referenced. i came away from this listen with some actionable points to implement immediately both in my own life and with people whom i manage.

There is something here for everyone and it is a very easily digested audiobook.

Great insight!

Enjoyed the insights that Pink provides into the real human motivation. Pink is able to boil down to several simple driving principles.

Another brilliant, insightful, easy to absorb book by Daniel Pink

As someone fascinated by the human condition and performance, I thoroughly enjoyed Dan’s perspective and curation. I also love the plain English style of his books, which make them so easy to listen to and absorb the valuable insights. I actually recommended this book to many people before I even finished it! Thanks Dan, looking forward to another book shortly.

Superb. A classic on motivation

This is the age of intrinsic motivation rather than external things such as carrot and stick
Pink expands on this by adding autonomy, mastery and purpose
Sounds easy?
Pink reminds us that mastery takes time and deliberate practice!

Highly recommended

Half good half pointless

There are some really good points and eye opening realisations but it failed to capture me and keep me engaged when he elaborated. And the last 30 minutes of the book is pointless

excellent contribution.....

I loved the book, the author's contribution and narration. He captured the essence of the needs which all organisations and team are to account for if they are to inspire and partner with the best talent. I will certainly to all.
