I have always mixed feelings towards books that introduce themselves like that:

One sentence: Everyone should read this book! Let me be clear: I will be reading this book over and over again throughout my life. Thank you Michael for writing it.

As a relatively newly trained life coach, as well as being an "info-holic", I read Neill's "Supercoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone's Life". I return to it to receive his experience, wisdom and motivation. "Supercoach" exudes common sense sprinkled with humor.

One of the misconceptions, Neill clears up relates to the law of attraction which has been around for decades. I have spoken with people who wonder why they are not attracting the "things" they want--like a good parking space, a bigger

It’s not that hard really. Everything you need to know in order to live the life you want is already inside you. That’s the message that remains with me after finishing this book. And yes, I adhere to that principle. The what and why. But then, there’s the how... and this is not very developed in the book. Which leaves me somewhat hanging with that challenge...

I loved the original Supercoach from 2009, but and while some of the useful sections, tips and strategies that were present in the original are missing from this new version, this one certainly feels more coherent and more in line with Neil's more recent 3 Principles based work, such as the Inside-Out Revolution (a great one) and Creating the Impossible. Like those books, this one is really insightful and enjoyable to read, and one to return to from time to time.

Rating: (all out of 5 stars)

Quality of the writing: 5 / 5

This is the 10th Anniversary Edition, Revised and Updated.

Michael Neill’s writing is evocative and action oriented.

Throughout the book, the reader is provided with many actionable thoughts, super-coaching tips and each chapter has a solid chapter in a nutshell summary.

This is how I like to read books. My summary of the book, which is 18 typed pages, includes a section for the coaching tips, a section for the summaries, and then all of t

Great Joy in Reading This Book!

I felt sincerely joyous as I read Supercoach. It is well written with an appealing tone and a genuine voice. You don't have to be a coach to benefit from this book, being a person who do. It's not terribly long, but each of the ten chapters focus on a substantive concept, giving a clear explanation with relatable examples. Each chapter begins with a short story connected to the chapter's main idea. Each chapter has an exercise to try, coaching tips, and a summary o

I love Michael's writing style. He writes like he's having a conversation with you and his experience and knowledge of his subject is not hidden behind a lot of jargon or fluff.

I've worked through this book a couple of times now, and have reminders set to read certain passages, and do the work, set in my planners.

It's just that good!

If you want to challenge yourself or others to live the life you really want then this is a MUST READ; and I don't often say that.

I love Michael Neill's videos and podcasts. I have also enjoyed much of his writing. This book however, in my opinion, reflect that well on all he has to offer. That is perhaps because, this was written around the time that Neill transitioned from NLP to 3 Principles. So his own understanding, or at least the articulation of it, is not as mature as his later work.

A very interesting book. Although I found the same ideas Michael Neill presents in many other books and coaching conferences, the way he explains them, makes them easy to understand for yourself, as a person, but as a coach. I recommend the book for an easy way to organize and clear your mind of not_so_healthy_thinking_habits! :)

One of the best books on coaching I’ve read. Michael Neil’s style of writing is very easy, completed the entire book in 3 days on holiday. Love his ability to turn his teachings into actionable steps and to feel a more mindful style of coaching is possible. Look forward to reading “Creating the Impossible” and bl being the advice into my own coaching practice and programs.

Excellent. He makes great points and offers exercises to implement each strategy into your life. While I didn't agree with everything suggested by the author, that may have more to do with my ingrained patterns and beliefs than his content. ;)
This is a book to read at least twice, then work through step by step. Yes, it's that good.

What I love about this book is that it's actionable and packed with tools and steps in making small changes, developing new habits, reshaping some stigmatic views and most importantly transforming the life as a result.

I took a lot of notes for later references and excited to share some lessons learned with my networks.

Personally I hate when books give stories from other people's lives as examples.

"We experience what we think."
"We think we are experiencing our reality but we are really experiencing is our thinking."
"It's not the thoughts that pass through your head that impact your life; it's the ones you take possession of and think about all day long."

A must for any coach of any sort.
Michael Neill is able to transform anyone's life, even without talking to them.

This book is really like getting coached. If you're able to read for insights, you'll see how life can actually look different once you understand the clear Principles behind it.

And Michael is great on explaining them.

This is a book I will read again to get all the wisdom it holds.
There are a lot of exercises to do, for yourself, to use with clients or as an advice to a friend.
It is easy to read and makes sense. Inspirational and motivational.

I am suggesting this book to anyone. Even if they are not on the path of becoming a Coach themselves. It contains really nicely outlined insights on 3 principles as well as some exercises to see the nature of the mind.

A fun, insightful, and enjoyable read, Michael Neill offers up ten key insights that he takes you through, chapter by chapter. It's a great reminder and his perspectives are interesting, thoughtful, and inspiring. Good stories too. Highly recommended and worth repeat reading.

The book caught my full attention from the very beginning. It has a lot of valuable things to reflect upon.

It's a nice peptalk and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I need more than a peptalk to truly change my life. This book can't substitute real live help and support.

Michael Neill is one of my favourite life coaches and his writing is excellent in this book. His style is always engaging and humorous and helps make the advice more relatable and palatable. This is the recently re-released version, written 10 years after the original version. The new version incorporates his understanding of the 3 Principles into guiding people how to live their lives. It's probably my favourite book of his. I've found his explanations of the 3 Principles easiest to digest in t ...more

Wow, what a book! It was on my 'to read' list for quite some time, mostly because I am always on the look for new techniques, tips and experiences from real time practice that I can incorporate in my own coaching sessions with students. Well, I got more than I bargained for. This book is seriously one of the best inspirational and motivational book I have ever read.

“Hope is the magic elixir that energizes dreams, fuels possibilities, and lets you live beyond the limits of your historical thinking. It is not a promise that something you want will happen — it is an invitation to enjoy the possibility of what you want while you and life negotiate the eventual outcome.

There is never a good reason not to hope!”
