'This really is an excellent book without equal. The title belies its wider appeal and potential value. Experienced trainers and practitioners will find much to challenge their ingenuity and refresh ways of enhancing what Johns describes as the "life-long and career-long process" of personal development. This second edition expands significantly on the first edition. It's well organised and written in a clearly accessible and engaging style. For me it has always been a "must-buy"!' - Ian Horton, formerly of University of East London
