The book's language and manner of explanation is simple enough. I am always trying hard to find resources that my undergraduate students will find digestible and I think this book is one of them. Although our class does not necessarily focus on coaching and mentoring research, I think it can still be useful as a supplementary text.

An excellent introductory textbook. It is useful for students who want to understand research papers or need to undertake research themselves. The text is engaging and offers an excellent introduction to the primary research methods in coaching and mentoring.
