Format:Paperback
This book, written in non-academic prose and strewn with practical examples, is the most comprehensive book yet authored on the contemporary involvement of coaches in the business and executive development world. The book can serve as both a reference text for experienced coaches and a 'how-to' book for coaches seeking instruction. The book is also appropriate for those who want to make decisions about using coaches or establishing a coaching culture or academics or trainers seeking a primary text on coaching for use in an educational setting. Throughout the book, the authors underscore the importance of coaching as a learning opportunity. In tackling these issues the authors provide a blueprint for coaches on how to become more effective and increase their ability to work with a variety of clients. As coaching continues to grow as an applied profession, dominated by practitioners, its credibility is strongly enhanced when solid ideas are presented in a clear, articulate, and succinct fashion. This book easily achieves all those criteria and will add considerably to the wealth of knowledge and professional skills associated with coaching.

4.0 out of 5 stars questioning other reviews March 24 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The reviews posted here are suspicious, I have seen these reviews posted verbatim on other sites advertising this book - they appear in quotes with an author's name recommending the book. They are made to appear here as if customers have volunteered this information. How disappointing. I have no comment on the book, and in fact am interested in buying it - but it is disheartening to learn your review system is contrived.
