Coaching and Mentoring:
What they are and how to make the most of them

By Jane Renton, 2009

Written in typical The Economist fashion, this neat handbook provides a wonderful philosophical review of the rising practices of coaching and mentoring, if not the mechanics. Unlike other good references that dwell on logistical issues of setting up a coaching or mentoring program, this opts to explore the historical evolution of both management tools and provides a thoughtful capsule review of the pioneers and thought leaders in both practices.
