Friend & Foe: When to Cooperate, When to Compete, and How to Succeed at Both
While a superb introductory piece for conflict resolution and teamwork, I truly think that the authors could have made this book longer and better. They could have included more research, more hard evidence to back up their theories on innate human behavior and the sociology behind cooperate and competition. This book feels rushed, like a rough draft edited only for grammar not for content. Wonderful, only in the in between there seems to be an emphasis on thinking about race and about suppressing thoughts. No offense, but this only applies if you yourself might have racist tendencies. How does this help me, I happen to be a person of color or however I should be appropriately labeled to make you feel more comfortable interact in the world to either cooperate, compete or do both with others who might be racist or who might have a different perspective than me? That is the actual content that books should be made out of, that this book, a self proclaimed how-to-book, should be helping me with.
Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life in the countryside. Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace. When a German bomber crashes, the boys feel they should hate the airmen inside. But one of them saves David's life. From the author of War Horse now a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg comes a stunning children's story - loved by kids, teachers and parents alike. Share on. A timeless story celebrating friendship and imagination, written by Sophie Dahl, an exciting new voice in children's literature and illustrated by Lauren O'Hara.
