Mentors profiles forty individuals using intimate portraits and personal narratives; all of whom have been deeply influenced by someone who entered their lives at precisely the right moment to urge them on and help them realize their potential. Each of the subjects in this groundbreaking book is an ordinary person - except for the appearance of a mentor who enabled them to achieve the extraordinary. Among the subjects who have chosen to share their experiences are many whose names are well known, including Wynton Marsalis, Jill Clayburg, Ernest J. Gaines, Alan Dershowitz, Noam Chomsky, and the magician and performer Teller of Penn and Teller.
