Recommended Reading for Building Teams

But pity anyone  who   falls and has no  one to help them up.Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.  But how can one keep warm alone?Though one may be overpowered,  two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” You will also want to check out the other recommended  reading  for building your team below.
