Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have no doubt that those interested in youth mentoring wouldfind the specific chapters useful. It is then an extra bonus tohave available similarly fine articles on mentoring of students inacademia and mentoring in the workplace." (The PreventionResearcher, 1 December 2011)

"This book provides up-to-date review and synthesis of researchand theory on the antecedents, correlates, and consequences ofmentoring. It also provides critical analyses of the literature andthen reflection on the appraisals. This account organizes andcritiques the mentoring literature in a way that identifies keyissues and prompts heuristic hypotheses." (Neopoprealism Journal,24 November 2011)
