Item description for Just for the Money?: What Really Motivates Us at Work (Truth About Business) by Adrian Furnham...

If money makes the world go round, is it also what gets us out of bed? This polemic argues that, despite what economists say and financial institutions do, people are far from rational about their reasons for working, and money is not the only factor in how they choose a job. An intelligent analysis of money's role at home, work, and play shows how most people actually have a complicated, love--hate relationship with money that influences their working choices in intricate and unexpected ways. Appropriate for those questioning the meaning of work in their lives and managers exploring employee motivatation, this argument presents surprisingly counterintuitive results on what money really means to the people earning it.
