"This book provides up-to-date review and synthesis of research and theory on the antecedents, correlates, and consequences of mentoring. It also provides critical analyses of the literature and then reflection on the appraisals. This account organizes and critiques the mentoring literature in a way that identifies key issues and prompts heuristic hypotheses." (Neopoprealism Journal, 24 November 2011)
"An integrative view of mentoring [is presented] in the last chapter…[it] does a great job in pulling together the three perspectives." (PsycCritiques)
"The definitive work on mentoring.... All contributors draw on existing knowledge to present best practices for each category.... Essential." (Choice)"Allen and Eby's vision to integrate the fragmented literature on mentoring employees, students, and youth has produced a masterful volume that will be immensely helpful to researchers and practitioners."
—Jeffrey H. Greenhaus, Drexel University
"By juxtapositioning parallel articles on youth, academic, and workplace mentoring on a various of topics – theory, practice, outcomes – this handbook spurs researchers in all three areas to broaden their thinking and challenge their current perspectives. I particularly enjoyed thinking about what was unique and what was common across the theoretical pathways through which mentoring benefits the protégé. Each type of mentoring has its unique features, but I found more commonality than I had expected before reading this book. The summary chapters at the end of each section were a particularly useful feature of the book."
—Jean B. Grossman, Princeton University
"This volume is truly ground-breaking in its integrative treatment of heretofore largely distinct bodies of scholarship on mentoring relationships within the diverse contexts of youth programs, higher education, and the workplace. Collectively, the contributions make a compelling case for not only the theoretical, but also the practical value of taking careful stock of the commonalities as well as the uniquenesses that characterize mentoring relationships across differing critical points in the life span. This handbook does a great deal to advance our understanding of mentoring relationships and how best to unlock their potential and, undoubtedly, will stimulate many further important advances in the field."
