"A major step forward in our understanding of intrinsic motivation. This book is readable, logical, and especially relevant to those concerned with the attraction, retention, and motivation of knowledge workers and the effective management of Generation X employees." - Barry D. Leskin, Chief Learning Officer, Chevron Corporation "An eminently useful and important book that every manager should have on his must-read self." - Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, USC and author of Organizing Genius "Ken Thomas raises a critical issue at a crucial time. How can the individual be proactive about making his or her own work more energizing and rewarding, and, simultaneously, what can the manager do to support or ignite this energy? The answers to both questions lie in the pages of this book." - Beverly Kaye, author of Up Is Not The Only Way and coauthor of Love 'Em or Lose 'Em: Getting Good People to Stay "Intrinsic Motivation at Work is a must-read for everyone who cares about organizational success and quality of life at work in the future. It's a virtual handbook for the self-managing and their leaders." - David W. Jamieson, Adjunct Professor of Management, Pepperdine University, President, Jamieson Consulting Group, and coauthor of Managing Workforce 2000
