Goes against the grain

Becoming a life coach is better than the deluge of other introductory books on the topic of life coaching in the modern world because it is grounded in a variety real experiences from real coaches. Each one has their own take on this strange and fast evolving profession, and many of them are counter to what you might expect life for a life coach to be like. I hope reading this book gives aspiring and current life coaches the confidence to pursue coaching in the way that is best suited to their personality, gifts, and values.

Didn't love it...

First - I'm glad I listened to this book and will probably do so again.

But there were a couple of things that didn't sit great with me. One was the way that there was a bit of a 'put down' on several of the coaches. Perhaps the written version wouldn't come off that way, but the tone of the narrator seemed a bit condescending.

But probably what bothered me more was that an untrained coach could get equal footing in this book as those who took the time to learn from others about the profession of coaching. With just featuring five coaches it seems that another approach could have been made to share what real life coaching is about.
