"... Talbott’s deceptively voluminous guide may well be the last word on career coaching. The experienced leadership coach tackles every aspect of the role, from understanding your client to building your reputation, but the real bonus here is how she seamlessly meshes the theoretical and practical – explaining the rigorous psychology behind the Kubler-Ross change curve, for example, before showing how to guide a newly bereft client through each stage from shock through to acceptance." - People Management
"I thoroughly recommend this timely, comprehensive, well-researched and practical book. It offers lots of tools and ideas for working with career transition (with others or themselves). Caroline seeks to cover the full picture of career transition coaching and she has certainly done just that. She seeks to rouse the reader, she does that too." - Liz Hall, editor, Coaching at Work--This text refers to the paperback edition.

There is more valuable material in this book than most I have read on the subject of transitional coaching, or indeed coaching in general. The contents are thoroughly researched and concisely put, packing a punch that bigger titles fail to do. The material follows a terrific framework and is littered with real and practical examples of how to support those going through career transitions.
But the theme of the book is as much about supporting and challenging transitions in general, not just careers. As such it provides a great guide to the field, but also some superbly detailed researched into what is effective.
In many ways it reminds me of Whitmore's seminal "Coaching for Performance" in how it is structured, and in how eminently practical a guide it is. That said, it's actually more evidenced-based that Whitmore, and it's this authenticity that makes it such a valuable source. As a coach I know a lot of the background, but give it to your clients and they will be able to relate to the experiences of those quoted. (Or if you are faced with a transition yourself, buy it because of this.)
And it's very readable, and the notes, references and sources are also very clear. The book is best summed up by the first word of its title: "Essential".
