The Art Of Mentoring by Ravishankar Gundlapalli (Book Review-3.75*/5) !!!

1586th BLOG POST -->>

Reading non-fiction book after reading fiction stories regularly makes you reach a different level of thinking and thought process itself. I have just finished reading the non-fictional attempt named “The Art Of Mentoring” written by the debutante, Ravishankar Gundlapalli. Generally, whenever we discuss about the self-help section of non-fiction books, there are always almost the same topics on which the author discusses throughout the book- how to be happy, how to be socially active, how to avoid stress etc. This book is totally different from all the self-help books I have read recently. It talks about how we can be a good mentor to people who are in quest to learn and also discusses about what are our responsibilities as a mentee.

The book begins with a long explanation by the author about why he wrote this book and how it would be helpful for the readers. This has taken a long time which makes sense as author wanted the reader to know the goal before starting to read this book. After that, author discusses about the myths of mentoring that people generally believe and sidelines it thinking that it’s not so important to spend his/her time in mentoring someone. And after this the real stuff begins where the author discusses about the points that a mentor should follow to be a good person to give guidance to people who are in actual need and can bring difference to the society. After discussing about the mentor, author focuses on the responsibilities of a mentee who needs a mentor to learn new things desperately and reach to another level of performance altogether.

The book is nicely written with diagrammatic representation in middle of the chapters which makes the experience of reading this book interesting. This book can be completed within one sitting of 1 to 1.5 hours itself. The points discussed are nicely briefed and described which makes it easy for the reader to remember and implement them later on. As Mentoring is not discussed much as a topic either in college books, this attempt is surely distinct and something which is essential as at any point of time in life, there are people who are looking forward to us for guidance while even we are looking out for someone who can lead us towards our goal and dreams. I give this book 3.75* out of 5. It is surely recommended for the people who want to be leaders and the people who are looking out for someone to lead them. Go for this book.
