FEBRUARY WEBSITE OF THE MONTH
"The Invisible Mentor" www.theinvisiblmentor.com is a blog written by Avil Beckforth and is designed for continuous learning.
As Avil says in the “Start Here” page, “My aim is to provide you with tools to mentor yourself through book reviews, biographies and interviews –learn from the experiences of others.” She adds, “You are in the right place if you are interested in reviews and summaries of the classics, books off the beaten path, a smattering of contemporary books; mini biographies of wise people; and interviews with accomplished people.”
The review I sampled was both informative and easy to read. Her “Start Here” page suggests a step-by-step plan for people who wish to mentor themselves. We think you will enjoy getting to know Avil Beckforth through her blog. The staff of the Long Branch Free Public Library will be happy to help you locate the books she recommends. Happy reading!
