    Every bit as good as the first one

    You'd think a follow up collection of activities would include those that werent good enough for the first book, but such is not the case here. Miller brings 50 more activities forward that are jsut as good as his first collection. Granted not all of them are winners, but there are enough good ones to make this a good resource. Bonus if you have virtual teams as this volume gives tips for how to use some (not all!) of the activiites for teams flung all over the place.

    Excellent ROI book

    As a corporate director of human resources I was very pleased with the theme and of this book. I am continually searching for new items that will `break the ice" and result in improved team building.

    As all of us realize that the old saying `time is money' has never been more true, the ideas and suggestions in this book can a lot of money in a very short time span. What a wonderful ROI.

    I might also suggest another book great ROI book, S-T-R-E-T-C-H Your Rewards Budget: Maximize the Return on Your Employee Recognition Investment.

    I hope you find this review helpful.
