This is a refreshingly pithy look at a few powerful ideas for making teams more effective. The authors offer well-structured and concise ideas with a lot of specific and useful information to move from acceptance to application. While a lot of the ideas will also ring true, this book offers powerful evidence and convincing arguments for those elements of teams that, when you come to think of it, are pretty clearly a great idea.

This is not a book for every leader. It is very much geared to those in charge of not just a team, but a Senior Leadership Team. So for those in that position or those who hope to be in that position one day I recommend it. It is not a touchy, feel good book about team building. It is very much research based and practical steps getting the most quality people on your team.
