Amongst the many and varied resources I used, I found the following two books to be particularly relevant and useful:-

  1. What is the origin of mentoring?

    The origins of mentoring can be traced back to ancient Greece and Odysseus. In Homer’s Odyssey Mentor was the wise and old friend of Odysseus in whom Odysseus placed the care, guidance and education of his son Telemachus when Odysseus left to fight the Trojan War.

    The first recorded modern usage of the term can be traced to a 1699 book entitled “Les Aventures de Telemaque” by the French writer François Fénelon whose lead character is Mentor.
