I spotted this book at my library and thought it might be worth reading as I have considered whether I would like to be a foundation dentist trainer at some point in my career. I can see how it could be a very rewarding process.
It's a quick read, only a couple of hours overall and not surprisingly doesn't have any massive revelations in it. However it has been useful for me, mainly to make me think about the formal process of mentoring. It is something that should be carefully considered so that the mentee can get the most from it.
I think the information in the book is fairly well summarised on these pages here:
If you are currently in a mentoring role I would be interested to know whether that happened organically or whether it was a carefully planned move and did you do any research beforehand to ensure it worked to its maximum potential?
