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, and 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.

Professional reviews

"Fans of Tim Gunn and his television programs, ÒProject RunwayÓ and ÒUnder the Gunn,Ó are sure to enjoy listening to this audiobook, read by the author himself. Any other narrator would be entirely gauche! Gunn isnÕt a performer, and his narrating style isnÕt conversationalÑheÕs definitely reading from his written material. Yet heÕs authentic with his well-known, distinct voice and speaking mannerisms. His candid reminiscences about his experiences as a teacher are interspersed with quotes from various people about their favorite teachers. He also dishes out behind-the-scenes details on his TV shows and various fashion celebrities. M.M.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
