So, I listened to this entire book about motivation, and I can't figure out why I don't feel motivated to write a review. No carrot, no stick, no review.

Judy Short but sweet?! hehe Love it.

One benefit I got from this book is that I will henceforth question myself about my motivation before doing anything I classify as "work." Why am I doing it? What do I hope for in terms of payoff? Too many things I'm doing just because I think I should. "What's in it for me?" is my new motto. (With the exception, of course, of service-oriented activities, in which the doing is the reward.)

Michael Flanagan I like my carrots.

Caroline +___+ Queen of succinct brilliance....

Praveen K May be some books were meant to be read. Since you would read with more concentration and are involved while reading a book. while with an audio book, you might be tempted to do other things as well, like driving or a household chore. Just my two cents. Hey, I am still a fan of audio books, which is my go-to way to listen some novels and get entertained and be done with them quickly.
