Please look out for our recently published and forthcoming titles.

Erik De Haan has revised and updated the highly successful 'Behind Closed Doors: Stories from the Coaching Room' and the second edition will be published in June. 'Behind Closed Doors' provides a unique view into a coach's highly personal practice, and offers transformational insights into the coach's reflections and experiences, into the evolving relationships between coach and coachee, and into the effects and outcomes for clients. The book shows executive coaches how they can dramatically increase the value they bring to organisations and individuals alike by creating better, deeper client relationships. It shows how practising executive coaches can be more effective in building the relationship with their clients, in reviewing this relationship and in achieving more meaningful and significant coaching outcomes.

'Games for English Literature' is a great new resource for anyone teaching literature at 'A' or Degree level. Written by David Roberts and Izabela Hopkins, the book contains a variety of games designed to be adaptable to different levels of study of English Literature. Some are more likely to appeal more to ‘A’ level students than to undergraduates, and vice versa. They draw on a common stock of materials that can be bought and adapted at little cost, and in some cases they map directly onto the kind of questions that typically get asked when students face assessment. Many of the games can be played without a teacher being present, although many also assume that someone will be there to draw together threads of discussion. If nothing else, these games are a great way of overcoming that horrible problem, the wall of silence that confronts every teacher of literature at some stage in his or her career.

'Buildings Are for People: Human Ecological Design', by Bill Caplan, offers a new approach to the process of conceiving architectural design that considers the interactions of the built environment with people and the natural environment. The text is supported by detailed examples of recently built buildings that fail to meet their intended goals, as well as examples of buildings that do. The book highlights the obvious – that buildings are built for people, a fact that seems to have been overlooked in the last half-century. It is fully illustrated with Bill's stunning photographs. 

The authors of 'Closeness at a Distance' have written a new, cutting-edge guide for managers who lead in highly complex organisations. 'Leading in Hyper-Complexity' is now available. Chris Edger, highly regarded author of 'Professional Area Management' has two new books coming out this year. The first, 'Effective Brand Leadership' is packed with contemporary case studies that show what makes a brand successful. The second, 'Area Management Models' provides pictorial models and frameworks that help Area Managers make sense of their environment and provide route-maps for greater effectiveness - this will publish later this year.  

Matt Nixon's 'Pariahs', which published in March deals with the hubris that leads some companies to overstep the moral boundaries acceptable to the public and become 'Pariah' organisations.  Robert France, specialist in environmental policy and watershed management, brings out a new work exploring the phenomenon of 'Integrated Agricultural Urbanism' - a thoughtful book about re-imagining urban living, urban livelihoods, and urban culture through urban agriculture. This is now available to buy Later in the year, we are publishing 'Elvis Style', a study of the King as a style icon with a huge influence on fashion. These are just some of the great books that we have recently published or are launching soon.
