    "Missing the exercises"

    Some books are better purchased as books. I am sad that I don't have the ability to use the exercises that are in the hardcopy.

    "Great Resource for Team Building"

    This is a sequel to Lencioni's The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Although Lencioni does not use the fable approach as in the first book, he outlines much more detail of the model and how to create more functional teams. He opens the book with an overview of the model and then proffers two key questions for work groups to ask themselves: 1) Are we really a team? (That is, are we interdependent and hold each other mutually accountable?) and 2) Are we ready for heavy lifting? The implication here is that this model won't work if the group isn't truly a team nor will it be successful unless the group is willing to put in the time and effort it takes to function effectively. The remainder of the book goes into details regarding tools and exercises for each of the dysfunctions. Although it's a bit drier then the fable approach, it's a great resource for anyone looking for ideas about team building.

    Full of useful management level advice. Solid advice for being a better team or for that matter a better co-worker.

    "Un-Listenable"

    This new release jumpped out at me at just the right time: I was taking a break from preparing for a team meeting. I researched it a bit, bought it, and downloaded it. I couldn't wait to get into the car and listen.

    I have been an Audible listener for almost 7 years and this is the absolute WORST vocal performance I have encountered. The William Shatner School of Over-Acting must be proud of Mr Leferrt. The performance is SOOOO over done that I couldn't follow the author's train of thought no matter how hard I tried.

    I guess I have been spoiled listening to Seth Godin recently. Listening to him is like having the author sitting next to me in the car. The natural delivery was dripping with his passion for the material.

    Think twice about buying a non-fiction work that isn't read by the author.

    What a shame, I was really interested in learning what the author had to say on this subject.
