A timeless book of lessons on mentorship, teaching, and learning from New York Times bestselling author Tim Gunn, host of the Emmy Award-nominated Project Runway and the reality show Under the Gunn . Tim Gunn, America's favorite reality TV cohost, is known for his kind but firm approach in providing wisdom, guidance, and support to the scores of design hopefuls on Project Runway . Having begun his fashion career as a teacher at Parsons The New School for Design, Tim knows more than a thing or two about mentorship and how to convey invaluable pearls of wisdom in an approachable, accessible manner. While Gunn's Golden Rules showcased Tim "as life coach," imparting lessons based on his personal experiences, Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor will focus on Tim "as teacher." Divided into sections on common themes--leadership, curiosity, diversity, understanding, empathy--this practical, timely book takes us on a journey through life lessons and uses Tim's own personal experiences, from the classroom to the therapist's office, to illustrate larger concepts. Each chapter will end with a "life assignment," where Tim challenges you to apply the lessons you've learned in practical mentoring or teaching situations. So grab a pencil and start taking notes: class is officially in session!
