Dave Ellis, a master coach himself, offers coaches excellent, practical suggestions. I've studied life coaching for nearly 20 years and have been a practicing life coach for the past 10 years. I use the strategies in this book as the foundation for my successful coaching practice. If you are serious about helping others, don't miss the opportunity to read and use this book.

I am studying to be a Life Coach. I found this book to be extremely clear and well-organized. It kept my attention throughout. In fact, once I started reading it I didn't want to put it down. I learned a lot from this book and am already practicing the techniques that it covers in my own coaching practice. I recommend this book to all helping professionals, even those who are experienced with Life Coaching. I also want to mention that I have written 12 books myself and am therefore a VERY discriminating reader. It says a lot that I have given this book such high accolades!

This is an excellent book, very well written. As a practicing Life and Business Coach, I found this book to be practical, informative, detailed, and yet un-complicated. It presents clear understanding of some of the challenges of building a Life Coaching Practice, and allows the reader to grow in a progressive way towards better understanding and deeper coaching.

A good book providing a lot of common sense and practical advices on how to work with clients, how to cope with problems and overview of good practices coming from the author experience. It is a book with no theory and about the practical aspects.
The first part of the book is focused around coaching process and various aspects of coach-client relationship. The second part of the book is around coaching practices that the author uses himself.
Worth reading particularly for new coaches
