This is a fast and interesting read. You will read about his life experiences and his reasoning for his research, which is based on how people think and what makes them do things the way they do. Here is what I got out of the book.
Chapter 1 – Paid More for Less
Essentially, there is a happy balance point that allows people to be happy with how much they are paid and allow them to complete their work without feeling completely overwhelmed. Obviously, those who aren’t paid enough will not do a good job. However, if a person is paid a huge bonus, that pressure to perform decreases a person’s ability to do the best work at hand and ultimately causes a person to crack. Shelling out the big bucks isn’t what’s best for society and for the person himself.
