What made the experience of listening to Getting There: A Book of Mentors the most enjoyable?
I liked the male narrator. Also, learning some of the back stories of famous people was cool.
What other book might you compare Getting There: A Book of Mentors to and why?
I don't read a lot of personal development books...seems like it's probably similar to some of those.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
There were no characters, just real people.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It had short chapters, so it was good to listen to in quick shifts.
Any additional comments?
I got this for free in exchange for an honest review.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
Frank Gehry's chapter stands out for me. One of his pearls of advice was startling for me as a designer because it was so on target and yet something I had never heard a creative person observe or provide advice about before. You'll have to listen to learn more.... It was also very helpful to me as a dyslexic to find a set of the mentors in this book who share an arc of experiences - not fitting in as kids, taking jobs seeming below their calling or wide of the mark, and then later pulling everything together in a grand slam. Saying that it's good to see this story played out again and again by people, some who are very likely also dyslexic, is an understatement. Thank you Gillian. The book is an act of mentorship.
