This book is truly a manual – it consists almost entirely of bullet points, flowcharts, diagrams and little drawings. If that isn't enough for you, it comes with a CD-ROM that provides additional templates and ideas. Tony Bray's focus is utterly practical; he is less interested in theories than in lists of activities. He loves mnemonics and games, some of which sound pretty silly – but will probably work. The book's style is friendly and workmanlike. In fact, Bray may completely overwhelm you with ideas to try. getAbstract recommends this book to human-resource managers and others who want to introduce employees to new information, processes or experiences, or to help them brush up on old ones.
In this summary, you will learn
