About the Book

Critical Mass is a book about the perils we as a nation face when the absence of a proper mentor is too prevalent. It gives detailed accounts and examples of how mentorship can and has changed the lives of so many. In-depth interviews with leaders in the community such as pastors, small business owners, famous mentors, and the like shed light and give various perspectives on the subject. The subtitle “Why Having a Mentor Is as Important as Having a Mother” is both controversial and insightful. The real-world examples and personal accounts pierce the soul with riveting details. While I am certain that Critical Mass isn’t the first book about the importance of mentorship, I believe it is the first book that provides an actual “how to” to young people today. We have a responsibility to share our life experiences, or what I call “headknots,” in an effort to ease the pains that come along with them. It is critical. It is critical mass.

About the Author

Anthony Brinson has a degree in Business Management and is a small business owner in the city of Detroit. He also served for three years as Vice Chair Person for the United Children and Family Head Start Program in conjunction with the Fatherhood Initiative Program. He regularly participates in his children’s school functions and is currently working on his own initiative to involve more parents in the schools. Specifically, this initiative would make as a graduation requirement for High school seniors that their parents donate a certain amount of “in kind” hours towards the school. This would allow for the students to more regularly find their parents, and the parents of other children inside the school. “The continuing implementation of mentoring programs, as well as personal, one on one mentoring can and will heal many of the ailments that are plaguing the youth of today”.
