"These books in the new 'Giants of American Industry' series will prove both interesting and informative to children who want to know more about powerful moguls of the business world. Each volume in the series follows its subject from early childhood until death, concluding with a look at the individual's legacy. The treatments are generally evenhanded, including input from both admirers and folks who disagreed with various business practices. Giving depth to individuals less often the subject of children's biographies, these books will be useful additions to many libraries."
-- Booklist (October 2001) (Booklist 20011001)

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Nancy Shuker's Elizabeth Arden.

Gr. 7-10. These books in the new Giants of American Industry series will prove both interesting and informative to children who want to know more about powerful moguls of the business world. Elizabeth Arden rose from a life of poverty as the daughter of a farmer to become one of the best-known names in the world of beauty. John Paul Getty became known for a frosty business demeanor as he quickly found success in the oil business. Each volume in the series follows its subject from early childhood until death, concluding with a look at the individual's legacy. The treatments are generally evenhanded, including input from both admirers and folks who disagreed with various business practices. Photographs round out the texts. Giving depth to individuals less often the subject of children's biographies, these books will be useful additions to many libraries. Heather Hepler
