The first edition of An Introduction to Coaching Skills was of tremendous value to the coaching profession as well as a broad array of teachers and consultants.  It received high praise from luminary practitioners and scholars alike.  Seldom does a book appear that offers such useful advice, practical guidelines, video and written illustrations, and scholarly grounding.  Importantly, this second edition is even better.  Nieuwerburgh has capitalized on the feedback and personal learning that have occurred since the first edition and has produced an incredibly useful and valuable resource.  It is a volume that every coach should have in his or her library.
