If you're tired of carrots and sticks as extrinsic motivators in the workplace, this is the book for you. Pink argues that intrinsic motivators are superior for achieving results in today's "workplace." For at least a decade now, Pink has been an advocate for the kind of work that consultants like me do all the time. Not quite free agents, consultants still have a lot more autonomy than employees who are required to show up and inhabit cubicles. But companies still build cubicles and Office Space still resonates in many workplaces. I enjoyed the book, as I enjoy the autonomy of the consulting life. But we're still a privileged few and the danger is that we'll start thinking that the bubble we live in is one that everyone else lives in. It just isn't so.
