Recommends it for: teachers, pastors, youth workers
I have to do a little shameless self-promotion, because this is the first book I have published. :)

It's easy-to-scan to find great teambuilding activities that range from learning names, to discovering connections, to building trust, to maximizing teamwork to celebrating the group.

Recommends it for: anyone who works with groups
Some ideas adapt better than others to use with groups of teens at the library, but there are some great ice-breakers, food-for-thought ideas, and writing prompts in here. WPL folks, we've added this to our youth desk ref. collection (but I have it right now!).
Very nice resource when looking for a creative activity! The games are categorized and easy to look through when searching for a specific type of game or age range.

Read for ideas for my Baker class. Found lots of activities and corresponding discussion questions. Very worthwhile.
If you are a leader, you are going to read this book. This book is god for all ages.
Lots of icebreaker-type games.
