Schwartz explores why so many believe that the goal of working should be to earn money, how we arrived to believe that paying workers more leads to better work, and why this has made our society confused, unhappy, and has established a misguided system. Schwartz proves that the root of what drives us to do good work can rarely be incentivized and that the cause of bad work is often an attempt to do just that. With great insight and wisdom, Schwartz shows us how to take our first steps toward understanding, and empowering us all to find great work.
