Title – Mentor: The Kid & The CEO, A Simple Story of Achieving Significance
Author – Tom Pace with Walter Jenkins

A friend living in one of the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission shelters handed me this book to read. It was given to him in prison. He has read it several times.
It is the story of a young man who gets arrested after stealing beer from the store. While in jail during group therapy, an older man establishes a friendship with him. He gives him a book to read. This turns into a mentoring relationship that changes the young man’s life.
If you have a short attention span, this book is for you. The book teaches in crisp, clear, short chapters. At the bottom of every page, there are simple action steps. The conclusion of the book contains an (1) invitation to find a mentor and be a mentor, (2) a list of daily imperatives for improving your life, and (3) a list of books to read.
