First off, this is a fine book. It covers several theories and practices of getting teams together and having them hash out creative problems. The first 1/3 of the book covers the theories, some history, and the skill sets necesary to understand and implement these tools.

The remainder of the book is a list of "games" with thoughtful, but brief, outlines concerning use, rules and goals. Really these are some great ideas but I found most of them to be too "touchy feeling" for the engineering industry. That's not to say it's not good material.

What I am angry with is how mislead I was by the Amazon video trailer. That advertisement leads you to believe the book covers or shares insight into how firms like Google, Microsoft and others apply these tools to benefit. I was expecting more use case and less list of games.

I recommend the book, but be sure you know what you are ordering.
