Newport High School Library
"After reading Mentor: The Kid and the CEO, I realized that this could be a great tool for me to use with the young lives I deal with daily. I have been able to give out more than 100 books to youth. I have seen the positive impact it has had on their lives. Without Mr. Pace donating these books, I could never have reached so many with the message his book gives. Thank you!"

"Amazing! My wife and seven year old daughter finished reading your book in one evening. We simply couldn't put it down! A wonderful story that will intimately touch anyone who's ever made it the top, or just trying to figure out how to get to that next level. I'm adding this one to my required reading list for the young men I counsel, who are, in fact, searching for a better life and the means to get there! Thanks Tom and Walter for your inspiration!"
"I wanted you to know that we finished our first course on Mentor: The Kid and the CEO the end of June. My students really enjoyed it. I feel like they are more prepared to face the world and their challenges when they are released. They took the program seriously and worked very hard on their workbooks."

Mustang Mid-High School Principals
"I just want to thank y'all so much for your gift: a copy of Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life. My life had become completely hedonistic and without moral compass. I felt like the values I once had, dissolved in the face of the lifestyle I chose to live. I just want to thank you so much for your generosities and let you know how it has touched my life and strengthened my walk with the Lord."
"On behalf of the Sheriff's Office, and the inmate population we serve, please receive our gratitude for The Purpose Driven Life, and MENTOR: The Kid and The CEO. You provide for distribution to inmates at the Harris County Jail System."

Tyngsborough Public Schools
"I'm currnetly working on a project to discover 'great' self-help kinds of books to have my health education students read. I have read numerous books (probably close to 50) over the last year or so. Our school librarian is assisting me in creating my reading list as well as in acquiring copies for use by my students. Your book is one of those 'great' ones that I will include as part of my selection. You tell an uplifting and motivating story with solid principles 'woven' in."
