2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough novel content 22 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I hoped that this book would bring a new dimension to my coaching with its avowed intent to bring together the field practices of executive coaching and the lab work of neuroscientists. In this aim, it at best partly succeeds. Although the book trumpets its use of scientific terminology, much of the content is similar to other coaching books.

Through their rather breathless tone, Brown and Brown attempt to convey their excitement about the rapidly changing world of neuroscience and how it can inform coaching. Their excitement is probably justified, but is belied by the book's prosaic content.

3.0 out of 5 stars All mouth no trousers 12 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Haven't finished this yet, but at 3/4 way through I'm stlll waiting for the authors to put forward a working model of what they propose. There is lots of background about how the brain works, interesting discoveries in neuroscience etc, but the book seems a bit thin in terms of real content or real examples for coaches to use. The examples I have read don't seem to show anything different from what you might do in any other type of coaching.

A great book which underpins some core values of mine as a coach. This book adds a lot if you really want to enable your clients to succeed in their own skin!

A fascinating book very relevant for coaches tapping into a new and exciting area. It makes so much sense behind some of the approaches that we as coaches know work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Over priced and badly written 11 Nov 2012
By Executive coach - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This rates as one of the most disappointing books I have ever purchased! It's exhorbitantly expensive and it's content based on limited, confused and repetitive theories. It has two authors and the sharp contrast in styles and handling of content is shamelessly apparent. Although one author is better than the other both intellectually and stylistically, it certainly isn't enough to render the book worth reading. It's careless in conception and shabby in execution. Don't waste your money.
