It’s been a while since I read this (early July?), and I wish I’d gotten all the way through before it had to go back to the library — I didn’t read all of the supplementary/how-to material in the back. Interesting stuff, some of which I’d read before, about how rewards can backfire and other things about motivation & behavior. But as a cog, generally speaking, in the employment wheel, somewhat disheartening. It’s hard to see how one can influence a larger system to go in a more rational direction. Might try it again to see if there are tools I can integrate into my life, though.
