As a number of people have discovered, Dan Pink interviewed me (and my wife) for his new book, To Sell Is Human, and a few parts of that interview appear in it.

That interview is actually a very, very small portion of his book, and you can see some of those parts at Google Books (that link leads you to one page, and you can go to the previous page, too — for some reason I can’t link to that previous page).

I think several portions of Dan’s book are very applicable to education, and you’ll be able to read my thoughts on them and, more interestingly, Dan’s ideas, in an upcoming interview that will appear in my Education Week Teacher column.

Also, Education Week is sponsoring a short series of Webinars related to student motivation in the coming months, including one with Dan and another led by Chris Wejr and me.
