Inaccurate Title

This is a good book but I feel the title is misleading. The author spends so much time talking about self coaching that it drifts away from “ life coaching.” I was expecting book that would teach you not only about life coaching but how you could use the various chapters of the book to coach someone else. Maybe, we need a little more of how to set up a successful practice and the steps the author took to do that herself.

Performance wise it’s ok, the book drags a little which I can’t blame the reader for. I think she was trying not to fall asleep herself.

Overall it’s a good book and I believe there is a market for it. Self Coaching for Dummies would have been more appropriate.
