"Working in groups has never been more important than it is today. But anyone who's tried it knows how hard it is. Bell and Morse's entertaining and accessible guide to 'resilient participation' is essential reading for those who still believe in the human project. Democratising sustainability 101 has just arrived."- Tim Jackson, Professor of Sustainable Development in the Centre for Environmental Sustainability, University of Surrey and author of "Prosperity Withour Growth"
"The authors are clear in that they wish to analyse the importance of group efficacy and to do so they borrow heavily from the psychodynamic and systems traditions. The result is the Triple Task approach that combines these methodologies. It facilitates an analysis of the degree to which any group achieves its objectives while also scrutinizing the workings of that group." - Dr. Ruth McAreavey, School of Planning, Architecture & Civil Engineering, Queen's University, Belfast
