“This extraordinarily helpful book—using transcripts from real conversations, playful illustrations, checklists, and questionnaires—clearly shows a step-by-step process of diminishing the critic’s power and transforming it into an ally through psychological alchemy. They’ve found the perfect balance point by writing a book that isn’t too dense in theory to be useful and isn’t too superficial to have much lasting impact.”
—James Flaherty, author of Coaching: Evoking Excellence in Others
