Format: Hardcover
To be a mentor we learn in Mary Doyle's great new book, is to be a teacher, guide, example, encourager, facilitator and enabler. Mentoring Heroes offers the stories of 52 successful women and the mentors who empowered them. Thus, this book is a revelation of leaders inspiring others to become leaders to make their lives and their world better.
Here are the stories of but a few very successful women and how they rose to the top with the assistance and selflessness of their mentors. Ms. Doyle is very quick to point out that often the mentor was male, and often the mentoring was facilitated to no small degree by Divine Guidance.
Several of the success stories involve women this reviewer (and perhaps you, too) are aware of---for instance, actress, singer and motivational speaker Ann Jillian; Senior Marketing Vice resident of Sales Operations for BP Amoco Petroleum Products Anna
Cheng Catalano; archeologist with New York Metropolitan Museum of Art Diana Craig Patch, Ph.D. and Barbara Junceau, professional astrologer for personal and spiritual counseling.
On the other hand, most of these fabulous women are quietly leading their successful lives, each in their own venues and each very real. How did they do it? How did they make the time? How did they put their mentor's advice to work? And how have they become mentors in their own right? This reviewer exhorts you to read the book!
To be a mentor is to give of oneself to assist in the development of others. The reader will quickly ascertain that a prime example of such nobility is author Mary K. Doyle, herself. By writing and publishing Mentoring Heroes, Mary has opened a door for all of us. It is no wonder that this book won the Certificate of Excellence, National Publisher's Freedom Award, 2000. Mentoring Heroes is an inspiration!

Format: Hardcover
In Mentoring Heroes, Mary Doyle shows how fifty-two women attained high levels of professional and personal success both with the counseling, guidance, advice, and support of mentors, someone who helped them in a one-to-one relation acquire the knowledge, expertise, and experience to succeed. Mentoring Heroes also shows how these women passed on to others the gift of mentoring they themselves had received. Covering a wide diversity of occupations and careers, these true-life, illustrative stories are as engaging as they are informative, as inspiring as they are motivational. Mentoring Heroes is enthusiastically recommended reading and a welcome addition to women's studies reading lists and reference collections.

Mentors are heroes who mentor future heroes. Read "Mentoring Heroes" by Mary K. Doyle to learn how 52 women attained high levels of success with the help of mentors and how they, in turn, mentor others. The ROAR Show - Respect Others and Act Responsibly ( encourages elementary school children that by acting responsibly and making positive choices they can achieve great levels of success, too. I highly recommend this book if you want to give value to your wisdom, experiences, talent, and knowledge by sharing your unique gifts with someone else.

"Mentoring Heroes" won the Certificate of Excellence, National Publisher's Freedom Award, 2000.

Format: Hardcover
I am looking at this book due to a recommendation in "mean girls grown up" by Dellasega. I am disappointed as it seems to marginalize women who really sacrifice to prioritize their family or other non-fame, non-money related fields. Is the home educator who works part time and mentors her own great kids, and neighbourhood not in need of a mentor? Is she less intelligent because she makes less money or because she's less famous? I would like to see feminist writing that is more inclusive of real women's experiences and more varied need for mentoring.
