Sometimes you feel yourself spiraling downward, and you don't know what to do next. Or maybe next has involved seeking comfort all too frequently in your chocolate stash. I hear you. Recommended to me by a good friend, I picked up this book.

A book about motivation not to be missed by business owners and those who want to understand people and how they work—the book itself is a treatise against traditional motivating factors in workplaces. It does an excellent job of explaining how and why short-term and monetary rewards can be detrimental to innovation and business growth while encouraging new systems and concepts of work.
