9781422224823: Harry Truman: From Farmer to President (Extraordinary Success with a High School Diploma or Less)
From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-Each title begins with the same introduction explaining that it isn't necessary to have a college degree to be an achiever; motivation, hard work, and a dream are enough. Then subsequent chapters follow their subjects from their early to present lives (or deaths), without avoiding the darker facts. What isn't stressed is that most of these individuals did attend college for some time and/or were trained in their fields. Further complicating the point, each book ends with a chart of the highest-paying jobs that don't require a college career, but the authors don't mention that various positions require specialized training. Chapters begin with valuable "Words to Know" sections, but the layout is text-heavy and uninviting. These titles are poorly written and, at times, inaccurate.α(c) Copyright 2011.
