Good Work by Howard Gardner, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and William Damon

I have no idea why I bought this book. My guess is I read a book by Csikszentmihalyi, liked it, and then I saw the title on Amazon for cheap so I decided to get it. Given Csikszentmihalyi’s background in psychology, I was expecting some interesting research on working hard despite troubling circumstances. Instead I got a boring review of geneticists and journalists. Now, don’t get me wrong, I think the geneticists and journalists having really interesting occupations, but this book just bored me.

I don’t want to rip the book because I think my distaste originates from my misplaced expectations.
