KIRKUS REVIEW

Another vocational book, and a good one, this time concerned with the newspaper game. From the vocational angle it is excellent, for the basic points are made through the medium of the story, and the details about the ramifications of the newspaper, the different types of jobs, the mechanical set-up, etc., are quite naturally worked in. My one criticism is that the tail wags the dog. The story starts out as a mystery; the important clue comes in the first paragraph; the solution is quickly arrived at in the final chapter -- but the bulk of the inbetween chapters are vocational.
