Reviews - What do customers think about Sharing Wisdom: The Practical Art of Giving and Receiving Mentoring?

The chapters are too short.  Jan 13, 2002
While his ideas are good, each is only given a page or two of explanation. I felt like I was reading the Cliff Notes edition.
Companion on the Journey of life  Jul 11, 2000
A wonderful group of 40 short chapters (1-3 pages each) to assist all of us in the journey of life, and in journeying with others through life. I found this book to be an excellent way to start the day, or pause to refresh and perhaps gain perspective. It is a book I'll be reading over again, both individual chapters and from cover to cover.

Robert J. Wicks has a talent for seeing the simple in the most complex of situations. His "Kitchen Table Wisdom" is appropriate for all our relationships, be it the corporate executive mentoring a rising star, or a parent guiding an offspring through the maze of adolescence. His counsel will enrich the friendships we all treasure, from spouses and significant others to the car pool or water cooler discussions. Robert J. Wicks brings many years of professional "mentoring" experience to his writing, and yet is able to distill his knowledge and wisdom so it is useful for the common person. One of my favorite thoughts he offered in this book was to have "low expectations, and high hopes" for others. Then we will always be surprised!

This book would be understandable and a good read for all age groups, from the high school student involved in a peer counseling program, to the mother of toddlers joining in the challenges that come with that occupation, to the professional mentor - psychologist, spiritual director, pastor, to all of us a friends. This book has something for everyone, as we are all "Companions on the Journey of life."

I recommend this book... Everyone can find 3-5 minutes during the day to read a chapter, then the rest of the day will be filled with opportunities to use the wisdom gained.
