Many there are who can tell you about the person who "changed their lives" when they were kids. NOBODY shares the effects FROM THE MENTOR'S POINT OF VIEW. Every true mentor knows the feeling. In the end, it is far and away better than any positive effects they may have helped create in their former charges. That is the essence of this book.
