Drive | Daniel H. Pink
In his paradigm-shattering book Drive, Daniel H. Pink explains that the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to better both ourselves and the world. He visits companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation, and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.

Do you guys have any recommendations for books on the topic of motivation? I'm in a motivation for learning class, and we're doing a book club in a couple weeks. I chose Drive by Daniel Pink, but this is a topic I'm really interested in and I'm sure I'll want to read more on the subject.

Let me know. 🤓

ravenlee Does this work? I‘ve heard really good things about it but haven‘t read it yet. 5mo
Rachel.Rencher @ravenlee yeah! That type of book is exactly what I was looking for. I'm trying to learn how to help high schoolers be intrinsically motivated to work. Thank you! 🤗 5mo
ravenlee I hope you find some good ones! I‘d be interested to hear what you think of Grit. 5mo

Oops, forgot to review when I finished. Everyone should read this, even if you‘re not in management or the communications profession.

A worthwhile read for anyone looking to find harmony between their passions and their professional life. Perhaps not paradigm shattering, but a good, thought-provoking introduction to the concept of intrinsic rewards.

ravenlee Would some “historical inspired romance” be okay? I have a few Harlequin books that are too heavily Christian for me to enjoy them, but they‘re written pretty well otherwise. 13mo
TheReadingMermaid @ravenlee yes those would be absolutely perfect! email me and I'll send you the address of where you can ship them to. BTW make sure you send them via Media Mail. It's way cheaper. 13mo
TheSpineView I have a box of books all ready to send you. Would you please send me your address again. I lost it.. sigh... my email is lisa@thespineview.com 13mo

RavenLovelyReads @TheReadingMermaid That is Such a great cause!! I‘d be happy to send books your way- I hope the books I have are not too childish- I‘ll run the titles by you first 😇 14mo
TheReadingMermaid @RavenLovelyReads they are looking for bright colors in their books to something that they're all timers and dementia patients can look through again and again and be entertained by the bright colors. 14mo
Judybskt @TheReadingMermaid do they still want gardening books? 14mo
TheReadingMermaid @Judybskt YES!!! Please! 🌷😍🌱 14mo
jpmcwisemorgan I‘ll email tomorrow when I‘m at a computer. Do you have a timeframe for when you need them by? 14mo
TheReadingMermaid @jpmcwisemorgan if I could have them before January 1st that would be amazing 🙏🏻🤗 14mo
jpmcwisemorgan Ok that‘s good, I wanted to try to hit up Recycled Reads because sometimes they have coffee table kind of books. I have some mysteries already to send but if I can send some other books I‘m going to do that. 14mo
TheReadingMermaid @jpmcwisemorgan that is wonderful thank you! My mother and I have both been scouring Goodwills in the area as well. We have come up with a few that are large print which is also what they're looking for and some great picture books with bright colors. 14mo
jpmcwisemorgan Wow! You found large print? That‘s hard to come by. I worked in a thrift store for 7 years and I don‘t recall seeing much in large print. That‘s a great find! 14mo
TheReadingMermaid @jpmcwisemorgan IKR? I'm just as amazed as you are! 😲 14mo

I've just started this now, and I'm already intrigued by the research and what else he has to share! I enjoy reading #SelfHelp book, with an aim to learn and improve my skills, wellbeing, knowledge and so much more!
Are you self help nerd? What are some of your favourite topics?

MaGoose I usually read lots of books on improving your writing skills. 1y

After watching Pink‘s TED Talk years ago, I enthusiastically added Drive to my list of books to read. This book was such a disappointment. Watch the talk and read the first chapter. Then bail before his incessant jargon rehashing studies other researchers have conducted numbs your mind.

MyBookSwapClub Oh..I've just started now! Was it too much research? 1y
ocdIrene @MyBookSwapClub If I remember correctly, he did focus a lot on research, but it was his repeating it that was annoying. Rehash after rehash with little new research. I do wonder if I noticed more repetition because I listened to the audiobook. I‘ve noticed that when authors repeat certain words or phrases a lot, it annoys me more in audiobook format. I think my eyes just scan right over the repetitions if I‘m reading print. 1y

I listened to this for work. My team has been working on transforming our performance review process over the past year and this book has been cited so much in all the research we‘ve done that I felt I needed to read it. Turns out I already knew pretty much everything in it so it wasn‘t too enlightening, but it‘s still important. Really easy listen with simply stated tenets; good for HR people, business leaders, consultants, etc.

Just finished my first book of 2018! A very good book, shares some groundbreaking ideas. The author read it well. It wasn‘t the most exciting page turner I‘ve ever read, but it is definitely an important book. I like how the authors includes several additional resources for further reading and learning. Teaches you about the value of intrinsic motivation and the pursuit of greatness for its own sake. 🙌🏻

I've got mixed feelings about this one... It was interesting enough (neat anecdotes about well-known businesses like 3M, etc) but repetitive in certain parts. It could be useful for managers, teachers and/or parents looking for alternate strategies, or for fans of self-help materials.
