Building a Productive Team Sep 2, 2006
This little book states well the mechanics of teambuilding and teamworkmanship, and I enjoyed reading it. In the end it shows that these mechanics can be summarized into ten distinct steps: (1) deciding on the importance of having a team; (2) assemblying a competent team; (3) doing what it takes to develop the team; (4) working like a team; (5) delegating power, responsibility to the team; (6) giving, not taking, credit for the success of the team; (7) collecting and sharing the returns from investment in the team's efforts; (8) divesting from underperforming team members; (9) opening and expanding opportunities for team growth; and (10) giving the team the reason, resources, and the chance to succeed.
In terms of depth and gusto this is not Maxwell at his best (I have read a few of his books), but the message of the book is clear even so. It is the notion that often cooperation enhances the collective comparative advantage of the team, making group specialization more productive than individual factor specialization. I have no evidence of my own against that, and I feel comfortable to agree, even if only for now. There is a lot to like about this book. Team leaders of both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations would benefit from reading this book.

I loved it May 10, 2006
I loved this book. Its a quick read. And it makes the point very quickly: Teams succeed, individuals don't! The glorified individuals we often hear of (steve jobs, bill gates, etc) are actually "leaders" leading successful teams. (Not that we don't know these things, but the book makes things obvious, very nicely.)
This book gives succinct recipes for building successful teams.
Read it. You will learn how to build a successful team in less than 1 hour.
Teetoncey Mar 1, 2005
I give this book four stars. It was exciting and I was always on the edge of my seat. The book I read was Teetoncey, written by Theodore Taylor. Young Ben O'Neal finds a girl on the banks of North Carolina. Mrs. O'Neal decides to take her in. Ben needs to learn to live with this young girl they call Teetoncey. Teetoncey does not talk and has lost her memory. In chapter 8, a doctor comes to check her and says, "Shock of one kind or another. It can be temporary or permanent. If she has brain damage, fare the' well. She'll be a vegetable. Better you ought to have left her in the surf...". Eleven chapters are left to solve this mystery. I think this book falls under the mystery/adventure category. Figuring out who Teetoncey is, is considered the mystery in this story. Just who is this young girl?! I liked this book because you never knew what was going to happen next. Theodore Taylor is from North Carolina. I think that is why he could describe the settings so well. The illustrations by Richard Cuffari also helped set the mysterious tone of the book. I think this book is great for 10-13 year olds. This book won 18 Books for young people awards. I'm not surprised I liked it so much because I enjoyed another work by this author, The Cay. I definitely recommend this book!
Teetoncey Feb 25, 2005
Teetoncey is writen by Theodore Taylor. This book is about a young boy named Ben who wants to show the men of the island that he is not a sissy. Ben and his mother,Rachel, live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. One night there is a sudden storm and tragic shipwreck that changes everything for Ben. This frail young girl that he helped save seems half-dead and cannot speak. As Ben helps this young girl to recover he shows the men how strong and caring he is like his dead father was. If you look sea stories and adventure this book is for you. Although the ending is very exciting, the middle is very dull. I liked this book and i hope you do too!
