Overview

Why We Work is a little book meant to accompany one of Barry Schwartz's TED talks, and it talks about what motivates us to get out of bed in the morning. The famous author of The Paradox of Choice argues that we use the wrong incentives, and ask the wrong questions, to lead those who make great products and services a reality.

Whether you're an employee and want to find out if your employer is actually doing a good job at keeping you around, or a manager trying to improve your team's motivation, these lessons will help you understand the other party a bit more.
