"In a Knowledge Worker age, coaching is mainstreamed. The Coaching Manual is the most current, comprehensive, practical, best-illustrated coaching source I have ever seen. It compellingly teaches the mindset of keeping the responsibility on the coachee combined with a powerful, realistic skillset". Dr. Stephen R. Covey, 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' "I really value this book. I found it to be written with wisdom and integrity and full of practical sound advice and guidelines. There are many books on coaching and if you have to choose I would say go for this one. It is comprehensive but above all easy to read and use and written by someone who walks the talk." Sue Knight, Author of 'NLP at Work' "It's unlikely that there's a better book for coaches on the market. Julie Starr is so obviously a people person because her passions for your personal fulfilment shines through and you can't help but want to become a better coach just to please her!" Anglo American Books, 03/03. "It's wonderfully supportive in tone. At times Starr's advice becomes almost Zen-like. Overall, this is a powerfully written book by a self-confident author who is passionate not only about coaching, but also about providing a service with integrity. It is rare for the personality of a writer to come through so strongly in a non-fiction text" People Management, Dec 2002 It offers new insights and fresh ideas to the established coach and an easy to follow, step-by-step approach for the beginner." Overall Rating ***** (Max 5 stars each for categories of Useful, Well Written, Practical, Inspirational, Value for money), Personnel Today, Feb 2003 "A wealth of information and practical exercises to improve the skills of any coach" UK College of Life Coaching, Jan 2003
