Relish Book ReviewsThe Library

We love books!! Here are a few that we would recommend on coaching NLP and personal development. If you have any recommendations of your own please let us know, we are always happy to add to our library.

Personal development:

Coaching for Performance (John Whitmore)
Whether you are starting out on your coaching career, looking for some personal development or just wanting to add to your existing coaching skills you will find something in this book. Jargon free and full of practical help for coaches of any standard.

The Inner Game of Golf (W. Timothy Gallwey)
Probably the inspiration for many coaching careers. Everything in this book holds true for coaching in just about any environment. Useful as either a self development or coaching manual. It might even improve your golf. The original was The Inner Game of Tennis, Timothy developed his theories after losing a match point that ultimately cost him the title.

Eat that Frog (Brian Tracy)
Metaphor is a great way to communicate and what better metaphor to conjure up the feelings associated with doing the things that you know you should but somehow keep putting off. It is chatty informative, jargon free and practical. Of course it might not have the impact if you are French so maybe it should read eat that live frog?

The Power of Full Engagement (Jim Loehr & Tony Schwartz)
There are only 24 hours in a day, you can’t squeeze an extra hour here and there if you need it so you have to make the most of what you have. We all have days where we feel able to take on the world and others when we would rather take a duvet day. Managing your energy not time is the key to more world conquering days. This book challenges conventional wisdom with common sense and almost states the obvious. An essential read for anyone who wants more success, less stress and more happiness.

Business development:

Influencing With Integrity (Genie. Z. Labourde)
For anyone who wants to know more about NLP and be able to apply it to their life or business this book is an essential. Simply written it de-mystifies much of the NLP jargon.

Co-Active coaching (Whitworth, Kimsey-House, Sandahl)
This is a process book. It offers much in the way of the building blocks for building and managing a coaching business. Invaluable in building a business from a process perspective, there are more practical books out there for developing coaching skills. Well worth the investment if you are going to coach for a living.

Mapping the Mind (Rita Carter)
If you need to know how things work this is a must. Even if you have no interest in coaching or NLP you will find this book fascinating. It takes the function of the most complex processor known to man (the brain) and explains it all in layman’s language supported by simple graphics.

Other books recommended by some of our people:

Illusions (Richard Bach)
The way of the peaceful warrior (Dan Millman)

“These two give interesting hints”

The Nature of Personal Reality (Jane Roberts)
“A life changing book, it answers so much, when I was reading it I kept thinking "of course!"

Creating Money (Sanaya Roman and Dwain Packer)
Living magically (Gill Edwards)

“For use in day to day life”

The power of focus (Jack Canfield)
“Interesting book, worth a read.”

The Celestine Prophesy (James Redfield)
“Interesting story”

The Alchemist and The Pilgrimage (Paulo Coelho)
“Both are a nice read”
