2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By John Hinds on September 3, 2010
Bert Gervais has written a wonderfully refreshing, actionable guide to help anyone who wants to effectively cultivate mentor relationships that will allow them to take their career, business, and most importantly, their LIFE to the next level.

I can tell you that from my years of experience in Corporate America and serving on multiple nonprofit boards, I've found the overwhelming majority of young professionals never learned the proper etiquette when it comes to cultivating effective mentor relationships. And the sad part is that they grow up to be `experienced' professionals who STILL don't know how to cultivate effective mentor relationships. It's no wonder that most people are struggling in the careers or are experiencing mediocre results.

The author did a wonderful job of dispelling some of the myths that hold people back from cultivating mentor relationships in the first place, which is important. Some of the myths surrounding mentoring are astonishing but are rampant in the minds of today's young people.

Next, Mr. Gervais gave wonderful examples of how you should apply his advice and WHY you should do it. The author also provides the reader with a template of an effective introductory email to a potential mentor and an in-person script that could `break the ice' which is ideal if you are one of those shy people and feel awkward in social settings.

What I also enjoyed about this book is that the author talked about the importance of having `soft' skills, which include the ability to communicate, to be a go-giver, work within a team environment, and showing that you care about the people in your network or company.

I read this book after listening to an interview by Gervais. The book is phenomenal and I am a mature business person. He presents an impressive plan for acquiring a mentor regardless of the individual's age.

I was actually sort of surprised when I received the book in the mail. It was thinner than I had expected. Nonetheless, I was happy to have received it. It was chock full of information. I think it's so important to have a mentor in your life, and while some may scoff at the idea, the truth is that there should be someone to guide you not just through the process of getting a job, but through some of life's other travails, as well.

Bert's book actually taught me a lesson in that. My father was the closest thing I had to a mentor; other than that, I didn't really have one, and I think I personally could have done a little better with one. However, I think I will keep this book with me as a constant reminder. Thanks, Bert!

This book is nothing short of phenomenal. "Who's in your Top Hive" gives you practical ways to improve your networking skills and your ability to attract useful mentors. One of my professors always says that "your network determines your net worth" and I think that this book gives tips that anyone can use to increase and improve their network. I would recommend it to young professionals who are looking for a way to take the next step in their careers and do not know how. Wonderful book.

"Who's In Your Top HIve" is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to harness the power of mentors. I was intrigued by the title of the book and was fascinated to uncover the meaning behind it, which Bert explains in perfect relation to the mentor-mentee relationship. What I enjoyed most about the book was the author's very personal, almost vulnerable depiction of his own life and his career journey and mentor search. It truly makes his message come alive. The author clearly speaks from experience and is passionate about helping others discover their full potential by harnessing the power of mentorship in their lives. As someone who has been on both the receiving and giving end of the mentor experience, I couldn't agree more with Bert's analysis and advice. He goes above and beyond someone merely giving an objective step-by-step process (though he does that, too) to someone who gets inside the subjective experience of persons to uncover what really makes us tick and how we can maximize our potential through inter-personal relationships, especially with those wise people who can help propel us forward to achieve all of our career and life goals. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone and have already bought copies for everyone that I care about!
