No one is better equipped to write such a book than the two Davids Clutterbuck and Megginson. Their detailed and meticulous work will serve as an invaluable resource for many coaches. Many of them may already be naturally using a combination of the techniques offered, but they way this book reinforces and contextualises them will help to consolidate the best practices currently deployed. The many case studies to which the authors refer well illustrate the techniques in application. I particularly welcomed the prominence given to Relationship (Chapter 1) and to Self-Knowledge (Chapter 4) the basis and the essence of good coaching and mentoring.
