About the Book

Most books are for reading, but this book is for playing. Playing together promotes transparency and bridges learning gaps. Apply this Playbook, and your events will never be the same. But why play? Playing is serious business, and we can trust the neuroscience on this. Playing relieves stress, improves brain function, boosts energy and creativity, increases and improves connections with others, and heals emotional wounds. Playfulness is a state of mind where we experience being absorbed in the moment, a collective flow during which we are focused, curious, spontaneous, engaged, and open to learning.
