“I see this book as an excellent guide to understand the nuances of mentoring for those in the practice and for those aspiring to step in…a valuable companion for the corporate executives to nurture leaders and confident young people in their teams.”

C Parthasarathy,
Chairman and Managing Director, Karvy Group"

The book has beautiful examples in every chapter that definitely helps the reader get a better understanding with helpful concepts and case stories… The in-depth analysis on mentorship done by Guptan is commendable… It is safe to say that this book should be a guide for all aspiring mentors or individuals who are already playing the role of a mentor in someone’s life and also all individuals who have mentors who they look up to whenever they need guidance.”
