—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."
—COLONEL JOHN MOGGE (USAF Retired), SVP, CH2MHILL
