Systems Thinking is a complicated topic. This book includes great group exercises, that in the hands of a good facilitator, will enable people to grasp the concepts. It includes a DVD of people doing many of the exercises so you can get a feel ahead of time as to how things operate. Great resource.

Another good resource for working with groups. We've used it a bit and had some good success with the exercises.

I assumed that the book should be more cognitive, containing some fine principles, but there were none. There is no glue to be seen.
