An Introduction to Coaching Skills: A Practical Gu&hellip by Christian van Nieuwerburgh
5.0 out of 5 stars Just Right, 27 Jun 2014
This is a must for an aspiring coach, a practicing coach still developing his or her skills or indeed an experienced coach who needs to refer back to core principles. It is a book of great warmth, humanity and wisdom in a genre (books on coaching) that often forgets that we are talking about human beings here - their thoughts, feelings and behaviours - and not just 'process'. As others have said, the supporting video clips are a masterstroke.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this album, 25 Jun 2014
This album, as it was, is a classic. I have owned it in several formats - as its other incarnation 'Afro-Rock' on LP and as a download as the album Zimbabwe. So why the one star? I am not pedantic. But what has been done to this album is appalling. I put the first track on, Barazinbar and waited for Mongesi Feza's stunning trumpet solo that kicks in after the first minute or so. And I waited. I realised that it was turned down so far in the mix that it is barely there. I thought I should skip to track 8 where again Feza delivers a stunning solo. Again it's lost.

I can't imagine how it must feel to make a great record, you know it's a great record, everyone who hears it says it's a great record and almost no-one buys it. The '60's US garage and late '80's shoegaze influences are obvious but this is outstandingly good and gets better and better as you work through the album. It finishes will a lovely piece of straight pop music 'Jokes on You' but before that there are some exceptional pieces including 'Sunraindown', 'Dusted' and the standout for me 'Standing on an Empire'. But even as I highlight the best (for me) pieces there's nothing here that I would skip to get to the next track.
