The Life Coaching Handbook: Everything you need to&hellip by Curly Martin
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I purchased this book to learn about life coaching and was pleasantly surprised to find that, not only did I learn about life coaching but also how to start a life coaching practice. Obviously, reading one book won't make you a qualified life coach, but it is an ideal introduction to the field and a great launch pad from which to either read more on the subject or actually take a life coach training course.

Ms Martin's encouraging style of writing kept me reading and made me hunger to learn more. As a result I also purchased her two other books. All of her books (like Curly in person) are encouraging and motivating.

Happy reading.

Also covered are other types of freelance writing, such as copywriting… Read more

The essays are short and packed with useful, practical information supported by anecdotes about famous writers. Each page is colourfully decorated. This is quite a clever device. Instead of being a distraction, it helps the reader focus on the text.
It is extremely helpful for beginners but also contains plenty of ideas and information… Read more
