As a neuroscience sceptic I've been converted! This book is full of great exercises I can use in my coaching practice. I'm in a position to provide a rational neuroscientific explanation for the interventions I make and moves me from 'Trust me I'm the coach' to 'Here's the explanation for why this will work'.
