4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent coaching resource -- worth your investment, July 17 2004
By 
Cindy Marteney "Executive Leadership Coach" (Salt Lake City, UT United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
A friend of mine who did a review of coaching resources for Harvard Management Communication Letter let out a huge yawn when I mentioned James Flaherty's book. We had a good and lively debate over drinks in Cambridge (Massachusetts).
Meanwhile, if you're a serious practitioner (or serious about getting into coaching), don't let the style scare you off. This one is a gem, with an ontological bent, and packed with practical models and exercises. James' book is the result of a lifetime of study, decades of coaching, and integration of diverse intellectual traditions, including hermeneutics, phenomenology, pragmatism, the arts, and Zen.
I have studied under James and my only wish is that his sharp (and sometimes goofy) sense of humor and amazing gift for story-telling had come through in his book. Perhaps in his next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars great guide to coaching, Aug. 24 2003
I am a coach and i train people into coaching, and I use this book and referr to Flaherty as one good manual to get a frame on how to work with people and which way to build with them the coaching interaction, objectives and achievements. It is also very clear, has a lot of visual maps, and it's quite accurate too when it comes to issues definitions and their origins. It' not the complete guidebokk of coaching but very helpful indeed.I do suggest any coach to have it among the basic important manuals.
