Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hewlett’s book is full of smart advice, backed up by data, about the impact that a senior-level leader who acts as an advocate can have on others.” — Washington Post

“Over the years, I’ve certainly had mentors who were generous with their time and kept plentiful boxes of tissues in their offices. I’ve had supporters and cheerleaders. And I’m grateful for all those who’ve given me opportunities. But it wasn’t until I read about Sylvia Ann Hewlett’s new research in her book, Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor, that I understood what I had been yearning for all those years was an advocate.” — Washington Post

“This is an easy-to-read, powerfully written book. It has lots of potent examples, and clear advice on the steps to developing sponsorship.” — Globe & Mail

“This is a must-read book for anyone looking for substantive…advice on career advancement.” — Forbes

“Her research, presented, compellingly in her latest book, Forget a Mentor; Find a Sponsor (2013: Harvard Business Review Press)… is not only enlightening, but also practical.” — The Huffington Post

“Hewett, an economist...shows why sponsors, not mentors, are the proven ticket to the top and why women and minorities need them most.” — Irish Times

“an eye-opener for ambitious professionals” — Chicago Tribune

ADVANCE PRAISE for Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor:

Anne-Marie Slaughter, author, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All”—
“High-potential women need sponsors who will not only provide advice but also actively create opportunities to shine and advance. Hard work and merit are simply not enough.”

Cornel West, Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice, Union Theological Seminary—
“A powerful and urgent book. Sylvia Ann Hewlett shows how women and people of color can win sponsors and take their place at decision-making tables.”
