From Library Journal
Written by noted consultant Kroeger and his colleagues, this entertaining and informative volume is aimed at anyone trying to navigate the challenging social setting of the workplace. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) on which it is based was originally developed by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Myers Briggs, who drew on the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. This method has been widely used as a tool in both education and business. Originally published in 1988 and now fully revised and updated, the book is designed to help readers identify their own type and gain insight into the learning and operating styles of their colleagues. Its three sections are an introduction to typewatching (determining types), putting typewatching to work (leadership, team building, and conflict resolution), and understanding the 16 type profiles. A self-help book sure to be popular with readers, it will appeal to those who want to go a step beyond horoscopes to succeed in their careers. Recommended for self-help and popular business collections in public libraries and for academic libraries that collect in management consulting. Rona Ostrow, Lehman Coll. Lib., CUNY, Bronx
