5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introductory Book January 19, 2006
Format:Paperback
It covers a breadth of various topics in Group Dynamics. It doesn't go into too much depth though but it suffices in getting the reader's feet wet on the subject.

This book has a lot of great information and facts, it is easy to read. It would be better if it had some pictures or graphics to help describe some information.
