This book on mentoring and sponsoring is a wonderful compilation of inter- views from leaders in positions of influence. Their professions vary from engineers, geoscientists to a highly regarded tennis coach to sociologists to orchestra conductor and academics. Every one in this seemingly eclectic group had a genuine enthusiasm for helping young professionals. Regardless of the interviewee’s profession and definition of mentoring and sponsoring, I found commonality in every interview. The overarching theme is that every person was genuinely passionate about caring for people, with respect and trust being key ingredients to a successful relationship. Whether these inter- actions were formal or informal, I found that each had humility and humor when speaking about their mentor and sponsor roles. It is interesting that many did not realize until they were advanced in their careers or maybe even during the interview that they had mentors and sponsors or that they were mentors and sponsors.
