Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 11/01/2012 Gr 5–8—While, focusing more on the financial end of big business than on careers, this set briefly touches on jobs in several different industries. The timely and topical books explain the ins and outs, history, and future of different areas of commerce and highlight successful people in the various fields. This makes the volumes valuable right now for current material, but given the fast-changing nature of technology, entertainment, and other industries, some of them may not have a very long shelf life. Color photos, fact boxes, and text crowd the pages and the design features an ever-present image of money in the upper left corner. The set will be helpful for further research, for learning about an industry as a whole, and/or as an introduction to a study of economics. - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
