Very little learning wrapped in too much irrelevant information. Naration is pretty bad. The value for money is very bad.
This was not about team building. This author seems to feel that teams are a bad idea. He seems to feel that most people are lazy and perhaps stupid. Team Building, for him, is about being a strong and forceful leader who tricks the lazy people you're forced to work with into doing work. The author makes it quite clear he does not like teams, does not think they are effective most of the time, and should be an absolute last resort.
I surmise that if you are looking for books on team building, you are not looking for books on how to suffer the fools that surround you and how to be an overbearing, "I'll make all the decisions around here", manly-man leader.

This is clearly not about Team building; rather this is about how to get rid of team members when they don't seem to work out. Basically, Deaver Brown rambled about an hour without any key points or strategies/tips to build a team. It was not helpful at all!
