'A good read for those with a keen interest in coaching prepared to think for themselves about how it might be applied in educational settings' -
Afasic News

'This is a book which trains someone to coach both at work and in their personal lives, but it does so on the basis of sound research and experience. It is nevertheless not difficult to read, and its inclusive approach makes it a standard British-based work for some time to come' -
Chartered Management Institute

'This text is based on a course delivered to real postgraduate students. Thus it is wideranging and comprehensive in scope, without being over-wordy or banal' -
Elaine Cox, Head of Research in the International Centre for Coaching and Leadership Development at Oxford Brookes University
