The Surprising Truth about What Motivates us

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
our world. “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.
