Leave your name in the comment section to win THE IMMORTALITY OF INFLUENCE by Salome Thomas-El with Cecil Murphey. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning.

The 411: Influenced in no small part by the powerful mentors in his own youth, the award-winning educator and acclaimed author of I CHOOSE TO STAY offers a commonsense, inspiring road map to mentoring kids to thrive in today's challenging world--and creating a legacy of success for generations to come.

With over twenty years of experience helping hundreds of troubled children excel academically and personally, Salome Thomas-EL has an action plan that all of us--educators, businesspeople, volunteers, relatives, and everyday folks--can use to reach out to the young people in our lives.

By identifying the most important areas in which mentors can affect the lives of young people, Thomas-EL shows how you can be of influence in ways you may not expect. Whether you decide to provide a professional influence by exposing youth to the dynamics of the workplace, or a healthy influence by modeling participation in sports and showing how to make healthful food choices, or an influence in good character through interactions that demonstrate respect, friendship, and discipline, you'll find that the immortality of influence is achievable in every arena of life. Anything is possible when kids are given our time, taught to care for themselves and others, and led by our example--not only at home, but in the community at large. For any caring adult, this book is an essential guide to making a difference--not just for today, but forever.

Foreword by Will Smith.

This books souns amazingly inspirational - I left the teaching world because it's so hard to keep caring when you come up against so many walls and people who don't want you to care. It hurts. Not that I've stopped caring, but moving away from education helped to make it less painful.

It would be wonderful if there was something out there to keep our wings lifted despite the weight of the world. I'll be keeping my eyes out for this one, for sure!
