Houston, TX, United States – September 23rd, 2014 /PressCable/—
New self help book, “Mentor Me: GA=T+E—A Formula to Fulfill Your
Greatest Achievement,” byKen Poirot , has received favorable reviews from readers
and at least one professional critic already.
As reader Oana Ilasi states, “This is one of the best self help
books I have read…” Other readers have rated “Mentor Me ” five stars with comments such as:
“concise and helpful” (Mada Straier), “The book I’ve been waiting
for” (Toby Robinson), “really eye-opening” (Ida Kennedy), “different than other
self help books” (Pricilla Benton), and “Brilliant…this is my new favorite
book” (Thomas A.).
Professional critic Barry Silverstein, with ForewardReviews, wrote
“Mentor Me” is “fascinating…enlightening…conversational, educational, and often
inspirational…a valuable guide.”
When interviewed by the Book Club Reading List and asked what inspired
him to write it, author Ken Poirot replied:
“I always wanted to help people. This book gave me the opportunity
to leverage myself and my experiences to help the most people possible.
I was also not satisfied with the current business, success, self
help, self improvement books in the market. The other books I feel were mainly
theoretical where the reader has to try to figure out how to implement these
theoretical applications in their lives.
Most often entire workbooks are later published from these same
books just to help the reader better utilize the information.
My book solves this problem as I show the real world applications,
experiences, observations, and the resulting impact on my life.
In addition, this book is interactive, with places for the reader
to have their own individualized blueprint defined and therefore have their own
personal experience with the book.”
Author Ken Poirot also stated, “I wanted to emphasize to potential
readers ‘Mentor Me’ is not your typical self help or self improvement book. To
illustrate this point, I designed a video trailer that is very different than
other book video trailers you may have seen in the past.
When people watch the video trailer, I think they will walk away
sensing ‘Mentor Me’ is unlike other books in the self help, business, success,
achievement, or self improvement genres.”
