This book is less than 80 pages which is the cut off line for a book to be entered onto my all time book list. I do not really consider this to be a book at all. This is a mere 61 pages, which gets it a written review instead of a video review. This an abbreviated version of the much larger book by the same name and by the same author. I have not read the larger version, but I can guess that this much smaller version just contains a few of the other books main points. It will either serve readers in one of three ways: 1) as a quick reference to the main points of the larger version; 2) to wet the whistle of the reader to want to read the larger version because the topic seems so wondrous; 3) to let them know the larger version is not for them and a waste of time. The book has similar main point that are found in other team building or business literature in general. No new ideas are present that I can find, but they are reorganized and repackaged into a nicer format. The book is super tiny (6.5 inches tall by 4 inches wide), so if your interested it will not take a lot of your time. Is the book really worth the cover price of almost 9 bucks? I leave the value to the readers who seek out to add this to their reference section. 3 out of 5
This article sheds light on the usually unseen aspects of team building and management. Reading through the pages, I felt the collective experience being shared in a structured manner. Most of the team building aspects and ideas from this article still hold good. When a modern team is considered, some of the aspects need a clear temporal upgrade but this is the readers job to make the difference by themselves. I enjoyed specifically the differentiation of work groups and teams, which I expect to remember and use in whatever job I do. Writing could have been made simpler but overall a thorough learning experience.
I am giving this 3 stars because of the readability of the book. It is an assigned book from my business program and I can see why they chose it. It melds with our other books pretty well as for the content and thrust of the material but is is tough to read. It is more technical and heavy writing, which makes it hard to keep focused while reading and you need to read it slow, which makes the book seem very long. I never get around to it, but in between chapters there are lots of great questions and team exercises if you can take the time to go through them.
