This book does well in choosing a fictional vehicle to deliver an important message to managers of remote teams. There is a tendancy within the technology industry, and management in general, to think that VOICEMAIL, EMAIL, and WEB SITES etc. are in themselves the solution to managing staff spread across various workplaces. By drawing the comparison between a modern day project and King Arthur's building of Camelot, this book goes a long way to teaching the human element in making teams cohesive across cultural and geographic divides.

First of all, I enjoy "instructional fiction" as conveyed in business quick-reads like "Virtual Leadership." This type of business novel is fun to read! Also, this contemporary business text covers an important topic in the age of virtual organizations and e-businesses -- how to establish and manage virtual teams. Enjoy!
