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.
