Here we have a very accessible and readable work that not only serves as an excellent reference book - with a nice blend of theory, practical and case study - but also touches on interesting questions about some of the deeper aspects of coaching. The book is logically laid out and shows the depth to which the authors are in control of their subject matter. The passion of the authors, never overdone, shines through without ever resorting to sales-speak. I recommend the book. It is well worth the price.
Crammed with practical insights, tools and techniques, and grounded in theory and evidence, this vital book helps practitioners reflect and act on every aspect of coaching.

I found this book to be an incredibly useful resource for anyone who is looking into expanding the impact of coaching inside an organization. I wish I'd had this ten years ago, because it brings together critical business thinking, real-life examples and the soft side of coaching into an integrated whole. Before you invest in creating a coaching program from scratch, read this book and learn how it's done from the leaders in this area.
