Coaching From My Wheelchair by Dr. Lester Wright, Jr. is a self-help book for personal growth and development to bring positive changes in life.

This book consists of 10 chapters. Aside from the first chapter, which serves as an introduction, each subsequent chapter focuses on the various aspects of life that we must improve. It covers topics like positivity, obstacles, change, learning new things, comfort zone, strengths, self-awareness, habits, and, eventually, communication. It covers proven scientific theories and their applications. The author shares that identity change is a must for any lasting change in the habit. The author also explained how effective communication relies on understanding the different personality types.

There are several things I liked about this book. The book is short and easily readable. The chapters on self-awareness, habits, and communications were my favorites. All the tips and strategies the author discussed were practical and easy to apply. The author starts every chapter with a quote, and some of the quotes were really good and set the right tone for the chapter to begin. For example, look at this quote by Carl Rogers that the author shared in the book: 

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”

That quote immediately stuck with me. This book was professionally edited, and I only discovered one extra white space-related issue while reading it. 

There is nothing to dislike about the book. For the well-versed people in this productivity and self-development genre, this book does not offer any new, groundbreaking research. However, as the author admits at the beginning of the book, the author puts a personal spin on the familiar concepts discussed. In some ways, the book's added value is that, in a short book, the author covers a wide range of topics that are difficult to discover and read all in one place. The author has done an outstanding job of writing this book for this exact purpose. The author's personal experiences and stories make it a masterpiece.

I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars because of the reasons I have mentioned above. I recommend this book to all non-fiction readers, especially those who love reading self-improvement niches. This single book has the potential to compete with many top sellers because of the value it gives by providing diverse strategies and tips in a short book.
