Praise for Doing More with Teams
"Bruce Piasecki might well be the most interesting writer in the field of business today, in large part because he brings the perspective of a humanist with broad literary training to the table, as in this compelling book about working in teams. Only together do we, as the human race, move forward. This is true in all aspects of life but especially in business. An inspired and inspiring book."
JAY PARINI, author of The Last Station
"Everyone involved in creating exceptional teams should read Bruce Piasecki′s stunning new book. This is the most fun and fundamental business and society book I′ve read in decades. Doing More with Teams is skillfully narrated, with plenty of spice for corporate, military, and sports teams. With warmth and wit, he describes the power of teamwork and high performance and once again, Bruce adds a sense of magic to it. Piasecki offers us an amazing read that opens our mind as it empowers our actions."
