From the Quicklet on Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
Drive is a book that Daniel Pink decided to write after the fallout of A Whole New Mind. Pink states in his interview with the Wall Street Journal (refer to the Related Online Content section for the full interview) that a shift from left to right-brain abilities, as outlined in A Whole New Mind, would likely require an enhanced attention to motivation. This led him to research motivational science, which he says has unfurled in the last 40-50 years.
At another level, this book is about a question we all wonder at one point or another: what, exactly, makes us tick. Pink comes from a school of business and pop culture writers who seek to clarify and make various topics accessible to an audience who is not familiar with the academic research on these topics. Just as the crux of Pinks argument states for anyone, this book was designed to do well at the bookstores, but Pink had a lot of intrinsic interest and personal motivation for writing this book prior to any discussion of the books financial success.
