"The Series reflects a variety of occupations, time periods, and global perspectives. The table of contents and index make it easy to locate what you want. There is enough detail for a student to compare workers of today with those in history. Recommended."
--Library Media Connection, October 2005 (Library Media Connection 20051001)
"Each book combines authoritative, easy-to-understand text, average-quality black-and-white photographs, and primary-source quotations to tell what life was like for a painter or factory worker during his respective era...Frequent boxed excerpts from newspaper articles and quotes add authenticity. Students will find plenty of research material in these titles."
