Product Description: "There are excellent chapters on how to train and develop coaching and mentoring skills and on practical ethics…This is a superb book and an excellent resource for existing mentors and coaches. It will also be a valuable introduction for potential clients – and is likely to encourage them to become coaches and mentors in their own right."
The British Journal of Psychiatry

This engaging, comprehensive and practical book explains how to get the most out of coaching and mentoring. The authors identify the key principles of effective practice and make the text come alive through frequent use of interactive case material. It is a sound resource for those already engaged in, or thinking about, coaching and mentoring.
Dr Gerard Egan, Professor Emeritus, Loyola University, Chicago, USA.

"In the burgeoning field of coaching, Mary Connor and Julia Pokora have provided a very readable and accessible book that anyone who is thinking of becoming a coach or mentor should read. It provides very clear frameworks, tools and questions that can help a person decide whether this is the right direction for them and how to go about developing the competences, capabilities and capacities necessary."
Dr Peter Hawkins, Chairman of Bath Consultancy Group, UK and leading author and expert on coaching supervision.

"In all this is a thought provoking, well tested book of value to practitioners and trainers alike. For those who have not read deeply about Egan's model, it offers the best summary I know of the richness of this framework and the use of it in a 1:1 learning relationship."

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
