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 protégé 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
