KIRKUS REVIEW

Short sketches of an interesting variety of contemporary figures, each tops in his or her field. Science, art, sport, public life are all represented -- the Mayos, Menuhin, Earhart, Justice Holmes, etc. Useful not only for general reading but also as a starting point for further investigation -- for instance, the chapter on Malvina Hoffman makes one want to read her Heads and Tales, the one on William his various books, and so on.
