School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-These volumes all start with two statements, and readers are encouraged to "Find the answer in this book" to discover which one is true. Some of the titles are biographies of famous businessmen (for example, Walt Disney), while others are topical (for example, entrepreneurship), which shows a lack of focus in the series. The length of the books and the large font suggest a younger audience than the content indicates. The writing style is often choppy and stilted (e.g., "No one gets very far by being ignorant....If you studied hard and learned a lot, you're going to do very well"). Chapters are short, with headings, large font, and plenty of captioned photos and reproductions, though some photos are grainy with distorted color. Overall, not an impressive set.
