Review by

This book is much more useful and interesting than the original text Belbin wrote on his Team Roles theory (Management Teams: Why they succeed or fail). Departing from the social science mumbo-jumbo, it focuses on the practical applications of the theory in a working environment. Many of what Belbin states is still frightfully undocumented (especially his ramblings on the history of leadership) but the practical aspects seem sound.
