Book Review - Punished by Rewards

Punished by Rewards

The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise and Other Bribes
By: Alfie Kohn

Book Reivew

Truly most will find this to be a controversial book. Alfie Kohn seems to know that, and he relentlessly drives home his premise. To me it was a fairly repetitive book, yet, I can see why repetition is necessary. Many people will dismiss Kohn's premise out of hand, and that is a shame. People should take the time to carefully consider what he has to say. There is significant merit to it. Sometimes Alfie is a little too jaded and negative about people and how they do things, and that will contribute to an unnecessary loss of impact. Punished by Rewards will impact my thinking for years to come.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
