I read Drive two years ago and it remains one of the most important books I have ever touched. In my most humble of opinions, Drive is one of the two books every educator should read. The other being Alfie Kohn's Punished by Rewards. Drive changed my entire view of the world, simply by showing just about every bit of common knowledge about human motivation is wrong. Not just wrong, but terribly, terribly wrong. So what motivates our species? Watch the video or read the book!
