    "If you're like me you're relatively new to gamification. Well, if you're interested in human-focused design, I can heartily recommend Octalysis! This framework, while new to me, has helped me achieve a far better grasp of all the human elements in everything I do. I now feel adept at recognizing and transferring human elements like meaning, feelings, motivations into everything I do and work with. Octalysis was written by someone who really knows his stuff and I can't recommend it highly enough. If you're like me and want to bring/put the human element into your life and work, octalysis is the way to go."

    "This really puts into perspective what a task is all about. Comparing it to a game, something we all seem to be familiar with, makes a lot of sense. The framework seems to be incredibly versatile."

    "Yu-kai Chou has created a framework around what he calls the "8 Core Drives of Gamification." The result, Octalysis, thinks about the motivation of customers or users in terms of each of those 8 core drives. Not every business is going to be run effectively on this model, and there are aspects of a business play that Octalysis does not really touch on. Still, this is a useful piece of a larger business plan, and a helpful exercise for entrepreneurs and managers. "

    "As much as I really like the idea of gamifying business progress I just cannot take this framework seriously. It's so clearly written with only buzzwords that any real advice is completely impossible to find. Plus it really does not help that halfway through this list losing the point of what it's trying to do and instead folds back into itself making me wonder if there was any organization here. "
