I enjoyed this book for the most part- I think it makes a pretty good case for what really works to motivate people- especially for creative projects and innovation. He has good examples from various well respected sources as well and the latter part of the book is a workbook format which adds an interesting feature. Personally, when I read this kind of book it's both inspiring and frustrating. I think it tends to be marketed toward creative types and those that "do" though, really....it's a management book. That said, I'm curious how many managers read these books- they absolutely should. There are some concepts within- a bit on the light side in many ways but overall the premise is what every manager or project leader should be thinking and doing or at the very least trying.
