From School Library Journal:

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. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist:

In this not exactly balanced biography in the Great American Business series, Mara offers up a glowing portrait of Sam Walton as a hugely successful businessman and even a daring thinker, while barely touching upon the downside of Walton’s controversial business practices. The founder of Walmart is described as working hard both on the family farm and at school, serving his country during WWII, and then mastering the retail business, one store at a time. In a final bit of cheerleading, Mara concludes that Walton’s “greatest legacy” was proving “it was possible to start with nothing and make it all the way to the top.” Snazzy layouts and bright photos are inherent to the True Book brand, and any way you slice it, this is an unexpected topic that many kids will respond to. Grades 3-5. --Abby Nolan
