9780128007792: Motivation for Learning and Performance

Designed for educators, researchers, practitioners, or anyone interested in maximizing human potential, Motivation for Learning and Performance outlines 50 key motivation principles based on the latest scientific evidence from the disciplines of psychology, education, business, athletics, and neurology.  Using a highly applied and conversational style, the book is designed to inform the reader about how to diagnosis, analyze, and mediate learning and performance challenges influenced by motivation. 
In addition to discussing current theories of motivation and emotion, the book features chapters on the biopsychology of motivation, how motivation changes across the lifespan, and the important influences of socialization and culture on motivated behavior. Three chapters are devoted to practical strategies and the implementation of motivational change. Special sections are included on enhancing motivation at work, in the classroom, in competitive environments, and during online education.
 
Hoffman employs the innovative approach of using his interviews with "real" people including many notable personalities across diverse cultures and disciplines to illustrate motivated behavior. For example, readers will learn what motivated the colossal investment fraud masterminded by Bernie Madoff, the intimate thoughts of former NFL superstar Nick Lowery when he missed a field goal, and the joys and tribulations of Emmy-nominated "Curb your Enthusiasm" actress Cheryl Hines.
 
The book provides a practical, applied, and multi-disciplinary resource for anyone interested in motivation and performance, but especially for university students at the graduate or undergraduate level studying education, psychology, business, leadership, hospitality, sports management, or military science.  Additionally, the writing style and eclectic nature of the text will appeal to readers of non-fiction who can use the book to gain self-awareness to enhance performance of themselves or others.

Review:

"This is book is an essential read for anyone interested in human motivation and performance. It is thoroughly researched, well-written, and extremely relevant across achievement domains. As good as anything I have ever read on the topic."  -Gio Valiante, PhD, Professor, Sports Psychologist, and author of Fearless Golf

"Motivation derives from the Latin movere, to move, push, stir, or to agitate.  And, that is precisely what I experienced when I read, Motivation for Learning and Performance, the scholarly and yet accessible book by Bobby Hoffman. This book stimulated my thinking and drew me in emotionally.  Hoffman has expertly conveyed a wealth of information about an essential force in human learning and performance-motivation-by creatively nesting core principles and key concepts within the stirring lives of the famous (e.g., Cheryl Hines from HBOs "Curb Your Enthusiasm") and the infamous (e.g., Bernard Madoff; "Yes, that Madoff!").  Even the author's own life experience serves as a powerful tool for deepening understanding about human motivation and illuminating ways that this ability to push thinking, emotions, and behaviors forward can be fostered.  For these reasons and more, I regard this exploration of all-things motivation as a "must read," not only for those studying motivation or educators committed to enhancing the learning and performance of their students, but also any person fascinated with what moves or propels people forward even when the path is perilous and the footing uncertain." - Patricia Alexander, PhD., Jean Mullan Professor of Literacy, Distinguished Scholar-Teacher, University of Maryland
