Best book on gamification

So many books on this subject are fluffy, solely spending time on adding badges and leaderboards to everything which in my personal experience is only sometimes effective in motivating people. But Yu-Kai unpacks the whole science behind human motivation and how to really use gamification in anything. Very engaging book and will definitely re-read and continue to add notes.

Fantastic book to listen to packed with knowledge

Yu-Kai's book on Gamification guides readers (or listeners) through an amazing journey that helps tackle the ambiguous subject of Gamification in a practical and meaningful way. The mixture of theory, story telling, practical advice and tips not only make this book enjoyable to listen to, but also empowering, as you leave the book with a library of immediate practical tools you can implement in your life or work, if you feel so inclined
