So many 'self-help' guides seem to assume that readers will assess their usefulness and content by the number of pages. Refreshingly, this slim guide is condensed commonsense and relies on just 40 deep but accessible questions, one per page. The author's honesty and openness (non-perfect dad!) are the key. Buy it, use it, share it.
An easy to read and accessible book that gives plenty of help and advice of developing your child's character through sport. 40 great questions to use as conversation starters with your child. I wish I had read this book years ago when my own children started playing sport. Also really useful as a teacher who loves to coach sport at school - personal character development, teamwork, self-analysis.
An easy to read book which covers a crucial topic area. Richard's forty questions develop character and personal qualities in our children through their participation in sport. The book covers the topic of the role of parents who coach their own children within local sports teams - a tricky balancing act at the best of times!! An engaging book which will inevitably cause a parent to think about their behaviour and their body language. Every parent should read this book as they can't fail to take something away from it.
This is an easy to read, easy to use, dip in-&-out book, which I’ve found extremely helpful! A fantastic alternative to that too frequent desire to increase sporting achievement but instead engages with the character developing essentials... I thoroughly recommend! Rich Shorter knows what he’s talking about!
Conversations for the Journey is a well written, concise book filled with great advice and best practice. If it’s used by the best coaches across various professional sports teams you’ve got to invest in yourself and in this book.
You can not help but learn from ‘Conversations for the Journey’. It is a must for all parents, teachers, coaches or leaders. Practical, thought provoking, clearly set out and supported by excellent relevant examples. SUPERB.
