Horn Book Review
The individual titles in this series vary widely in quality but suffer mostly from dry, formulaic presentations. While covering the basics of their subjects' lives, work, and legacies, these short biographies often repeat text, illustrations, and sidebars from book to book and occasionally fail to define scientific terms. The texts are illustrated with plenty of archival photos. There are eight other books in this series. Bib., glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010.
