The game-based approach to employee motivation and performance described in this book is not conjecture, but based on one of the biggest databases in the history of applied behavioral science - more than 250 million games played by more than 50,000 workplace game players. This real-world application is a mature and effective affirmation of human behavior, not an experimental trial. --Robert R. Provine, Ph.D.
