What Drives You?
The Drive to Acquire?
The Drive to Bond?
The Drive to Learn?
The Drive to Defend?
Learn what two Harvard researchers–– Paul Lawrence and Nitin Nohria–have discovered about what drives us to make the choices we make. Driven reveals the scientific foundation for an understanding of human nature and the mysteries of human behavior.
"Driven makes a daring leap across disciplinary boundaries to show how recent research in biology sheds light on human nature, and thus social behavior. Social scientists need to pay attention to important works like this." ––Francis Fukuyama, author, The Great Disruption and The End of History and the Last Man
"This is a stimulating and provocative book in bringing together important ideas from different fields and, thereby, giving us a whole new slant on ′human nature.′" ––Edgar H. Schein, Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus and senior lecturer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
