Probably THE classic life coaching book review by James Taylor

"The Life Coaching Handbook: Everything You Need to Be an Effective Life Coach (Paperback) This is one of the books right at the centre of the modern life coaching industry, and we can understand why. In two hundred & fifty pages we have highly readable accounts of different personality types, different language techniques, various belief changing strategies, and lots more, together with numerous acronyms to assist us in memorising all this material. The book is wonderfully organised, and the writing style is crystal clear. The author is a fantastic communicator who communicates some complicated ideas very clearly and directly."

"Everyone should own this book if they intend to start a life coaching business, or if their job requires people skills. In fact, the skills are also useful in personal life, particularly, I've found, in the parenting of older children."

'Curly Martin's book is a must to take in to presentations to corporate clients. I made a successful pitch for a life balance programme for 20 people in a recruitment company to assist them in avoiding burnout and minimizing stress. Curly Martin's book "The Life Coaching Handbook" provided the stepping stone to credibility and an open door. I would advise any new coaches to maximize their relationship with Curly while building their corporate practice.'

The Personal Success Handbook

New from the bestselling author of The Life Coaching Handbook


The Personal Success Handbook

The Personal Success Handbook

Everything You Need to be Successful
£16.99 published 2007 ISBN 978-1845900908

Curly's new title, aimed at the individual, leads readers on a journey to define success. We are all different and success means different things to different people.

"This book, written in such an infectious and enthusiastic style, is extremely easy to pick up and read. It has approached the subject in a straightforward and logical manner, breaking it down into thought provoking readily digestible, manageable sections. Approaching the subject, as I did, with little knowledge of life-coaching, one cannot fail but to have one's usual mindset challenged and to be inspired and stimulated onto a path of self-analysis and diagnosis and self-improvement and increased personal aspiration."
