"...this [series] is meaty stuff for students who want to write a report on a personality they truly find engaging."
Covering noted historical and contemporary figures in the arts, business, sports, entertainment, politics, sciences, and social advocacy, among other fields, the Women of Achievement series profiles women who have made significant and influential contributions to their professions and to the world at large. Each book in this high-interest series gives students a complete overview of the subject's life, providing insight into her professional and personal motivations and historical context to her achievements. Complemented by full-color and black-and-white photographs, each title also features informational sidebars, a chronology of the subject's life, suggestions and Web sites for further research, and a helpful index.
