The Surprising Truth About What Motivates US

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates UsDrive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very readable and interesting book. New science questions the traditional concept of external rewards. Interfaces well with The Talent Code, a current favorite book. My friend Dave read it and became inspired to initiate a very challenging project, building an F-4 mandolin. I am now even more fueled to go hiking, in fact, this week! The book explains why the typical incentive systems for teachers to improve will not work. Explains why I have “Megatex” tattooed on my calf. Surround yourself with the best folks that you can assemble, and let them loose: the secret to completing the Pacific Crest Trail.

About tjamrog

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".
