KIRKUS REVIEW

The Youngs cite examples from their own acquaintance, which seems to run to little hustlers, to assure readers that it is possible to start your own food business as Taco Tammy did after a trip to Mexico, sell stuffed animal patterns as Carole did to the ""church ladies,"" or perhaps become a ten-year-old tennis pro like Hawthorn. Oddly, the authors reserve their detailed instructions for the more realistic but less attractive services-housecleaning, car wash--while the only acknowledged problem connected with starting your own rock group is keeping peace among the players. (""Once you're all together and have built up a repertoire, people will start asking you to play."") And, according to Arnie who does portraits in Miami and at Grossingers while on vacation with his parents, ""It's a lot easier to draw people than you think."" But this is really tailored to young entrepreneurs-those who can't think up a baby sitting service or a neighborhood flea market on their own but who agree that door-to-door selling is ""fun, profitable and very American.
