In Mentoring with Meaning: How Educators Can Be More Professional and Effective, Drs. McCray and Cooper have deepened our conceptualization of an often-discussed topic that remains misunderstood. Mentoring is not advising or supervision, but is instead a relationship between a mentor and a protege based on mutual commitment to each other's success. This edited volume embraces, documents and explores many facets of mentoring and will be of interest and use to educators working in many contexts. -- Jeffrey S. Brooks, professor, RMIT University
In our ever increasing globalization of technology, economics, education and leadership, Carlos McCray and Bruce Cooper have again taken the lead to provide us all with the necessary information and tools to better equip us in developing successful educators and leaders. -- Stan Kaminsky, clinical instructor of educational leadership, Fordham University
