Dan White has put his wisdom and experience into a book that is rich with both case studies and a discussion of how superb coaching works. I recommend this book for everyone in the field of coaching as a must–have resource.

Like executive coaches, books on executive coaching come and go. Not this one. With this exemplary work, Dan White has accomplished the rarity of combining his personal and professional experience, using highly readable cases, with his understanding of relevant concepts and theories.
