      Thanks a lot - this book is great. I hope both my sons will learn from your ideas - they are soon in the process of applying for jobs (online interviews etc.) - and this book is full with helpful ideas! (I order books from you when I am in the US because shipping costs are very high to Germany)

        Was not impressed with this book - the first one I can remember not liking of all the many I have purchased from Simple Truth. Didn't seem to be the type/format/readable/ encouraging/etc. as is consistently Simple Truth books. In fact, returned for exchange of another book. First time ever for me. Am not for sure why it affected me in just looking it over - Did not read it because it just didn't interest me whatsoever. Sorry!

            Excellent Team Building Resources
            The i in Team is filled with ideas for building great creative teams. Ideas that can be implemented in classrooms to boardrooms, from ditch diggers to canal builders. My only suggestion: Summarize this edition and follow the Simple Truths' plan of Simple, Short, and Inspirational. Then expand this edition to a classroom or boardroom textbook.
