Good Mentoring. Fostering Excellent Practice in Higher Education

"We pass on our traits through our genes but our cherished values, beliefs, and practices are transmitted through those units of meaning called memes. This remarkable book provides an authoritative account of how ′good work′ endures in the sciences and has profound implications for the quality of work across the professional landscape." Howard Gardner, editor, Responsibility at Work, and Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard University

"This book should sow the seeds of greatness for protégés and mentors alike, and well beyond the discipline of science. Mentoring lineages are the hallmark of disciplines that endure and have impact, a reality that the authors powerfully communicate." Carol A. Mullen, editor, Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, and professor and chair, Department of Educational Leadership and Cultural Foundations, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

"Good Mentoring is a landmark study with implications for the continued vibrancy of any discipline. This is a fresh, eye–opening perspective on the social transmission of professional lineages." Daniel Goleman, author, Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence
