Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Coaching is very topical at the moment but no other book has looked at it from the point of view of coaching through the life cycle. This is a unique, well written and important book—buy it, you won’t regret it."

Professor Cary L. Cooper CBE, Distinguished Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health at Lancaster University, UK

"Coaches will find this an invaluable resource as they help their clients – young or old – navigate the uncertain waters of life transitions. The authors lay out the complexities of intergenerational differences in an evidence-based, straightforward and easy-to-understand fashion. A fascinating and informative read."

Anthony M. Grant PhD, Director of the Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney, Australia
