How to Play Nice Together - Creating Community Locally and Globally is a story of seven people who are brought together to design a community. Not only are they strangers to each other, but they have absolutely nothing in common. They must learn to adjust to their diversity, to work out their interpersonal dynamics and to appreciate the collective power of their individual gifts.
The book focuses on the value in diversity. When people come together in any setting, be it in a workplace, an intentional community or an already existing community, they can purposely enrich their lives through conscious design.
At the end of the story, there is a workbook that provides the necessary steps of community design.
