Imagine waking up tomorrow morning and your life being exactly how you want it to be. This book will help you help yourself to find where this is - and get there. The only self-coaching book written by a business psychologist and based on scientifically tested techniques, it reveals the power of knowing how to coach yourself.....


- Coaching is still growing in availability and recognition - people who don't have access to a coach or can't afford one are eager to find ways of benefitting from the ideas.

- The large format £15 first edition was the bestselling of all momentum titles by a significant margin - this new smaller format, lower price edition will take it to a much bigger audience.

- The smaller format new edition Change Activist has sold really well.

- The lower price edition of Coach Yourself makes it real competitor to the 'self-help' coaching books such as 'Be Your Own Life Coach.'

- Coach Yourself has the advantage of being written by an academic coaching psychologist - it's not fluff, it's scientfically proven.
