I got this book and also Miller's Quick Teambuilding Activities for Busy Managers to add to my collection. This one had nothing much i didnt already have. The activities were kinda boring and some were'nt even what I would call activities, but rather topics for discussion. The layout, like others in the 'The big book of...' series was easy to navigate and concise. The Big Book of Humours Training Games had many more good activities that can be easily used for Teambuilding (which is why i then decided to get this one!). More than either of these, though, I'd recommend Millers book, much better activities and even a good chapter on what to do about what can go wrong in activities and how to avoid or fix.

All ages, sizes, and types of groups are accomidated. Reading the book also jumpstarts other ideas and games you can create yourself. The most helpful contents are the discussion questions that teach users how to interpret the games and sucessfully lead group reflections and discussions.Was this review helpful?

Though this book is not a terrible guide for those who are new to training, there is nothing in this book you couldn't think of on your own. This book was not helpful to me, and I opted to create some of my own games instead.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
