"Your people are not your greatest asset. They're not yours, and they're not assets."
With this declaration, one of the leading authorities on employee performance rolls up his sleeves against the weasel words, contradictions, bad habits, and intrusions that reduce people to "human resources". To "FTEs". To "human capital". To flesh-and-blood widgets.
Armed with empirical evidence from the provocative studies he leads around the globe, Wagner guides you through the new realities of what it takes to get the highest levels of intensity from people in a more mercenary, skeptical, and wired work world. He explains how elements such as individualization, fearlessness, transparency, recognition, and coolness are reciprocated with loyalty, productivity, innovation, and - inescapably - corporate reputation.

A whole lot of statistics, not very much substance.
It's a very boring book. I found myself constantly drifting off thinking of other things.
If you like statistics, this is the book for you. It is full of them. Personally, I like points to be backed up by real life examples, not just a bunch of numbers. The author is not very convincing about what he's trying to say.
