    I have been a big fan of social identity work and have been doing a lot of my research in that area. This book by Laura fits nicely in that area and also is directly important to the current world situation related to diversity. This led me to pick this book to review. The book speaks directly to practical issues in organizations starting with the basic foundation of the Us versus Them mentality that affects a diverse workforce or situation.

This book by Laura fits nicely in that area and also is directly important to the current world situation related to diversity. This led me to pick this book to review. The book speaks directly to practical issues in organizations starting with the basic foundation of the Us versus Them mentality that affects a diverse workforce or situation. Laura gives plenty of snippets of her personal experience from working in a Japanese company to those from her workshop attendees, which provides a lot of support to the whole framework of WE. She also shares a lot of her templates, assessment tools and facilitation tools (I loved the Team machine simulation) and other exercises - which I may even think about use in my classes). I am sure these will be of immense practical value to readers in the workplace. I thought the book could have been more condensed in communicating the ideas, at places I thought it dragged a bit with some repetitions at places. A good book for the current times.
