Review by

This very short book is intended as a guide to use Belbin's Team Roles theory to help in planned career changes. A short explanation of each Team Role is followed by general advice on how to determine the organisational culture of a prospective employer and adapt in consequence. The result is a very basic text that offers no groundbreaking advice but may help persons seeking a career change to ask themselves the correct questions and help them reorient themselves.
