A daring and essential insight into the society we're in.
Great work Tom and good to know someone cares about the bigger socio economic impact to local communities of our welfare state system
Excellent book, very inspirational.
Thought-provoking isn't enough. It's what you decide to do with those thoughts that count. This book opens doors - it's up to the reader to enter...
Great read...common sense through and through!
I like the way this book tries to draw attention taking responsibility is as important as expecting rights.
Excellent observations and truthful 'tell it like it is' approach. Definitely worth a read.
Brilliantly written - excellent insight - well worth a read. A curiously diverse view on the inside of social housing and much more!
A must to read I am sure.
A very good read
Practical solutions from someone who has walked the job and put the theory into practice, recommended reading and a writing style that keeps your attention form page 1 to the end.
a breath of fresh air and good common sense in a world full of the opposite
Very thought provoking, hope we get to see the issues raised and challenged with proposals from the book. Definitely has my vote :)
Very interesting read - thought provoking.
I’m not normally much of a book reader but I found this book really interesting and I could not put it down, very insightful and innovative in its message to reward positive behaviour.

Thought-provoking ideas from a left-field practitioner
Dr. Manion writes from experience - a great track record of putting theory into practice.
What an inspirational book. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Thank you. Phyllis Shaw.
The Reward Society is an interesting read and brings out how common sense can go a long way in achieving fantastic results. Even though the book touches on serious issues Dr Manion still managed to put humour in his writing which was refreshing and made the book more enjoyable. Chapter 6 is particularly interesting on how to manage and motivate people. This could be translated into all workplaces. Many of the benefits hep to protect the health and wellbeing of people, whilst at the same time making people feel valued and looked after.If everybody put as much effort, determination and enthusiasm into creating a happier society as Dr Manion does then we’d all be living in a better place! Well done for taking the time and effort to write this book – it’s fantastic and well worthy of an award.
