KIRKUS REVIEW

These ""millionaire close-ups"" appeared in the pages of this magazine, and over and above their built-in allure (curiosity, imitation incentive, or the ""economic Peeping Tom"" in all of us) they also prove certain things. A man can become a millionaire today in spite of taxes (and there are probably more than ever before) if he has the ability to take a risk and work hard; it also helps to have foresight, resourcefulness, organizational talent. Among the fourteen ""tough-minded individualists"" appearing here are an oil man, a restaurateur, a real estate operator, a baker, a magazine publisher, a public relations and a stock promoter, an engineer Ralph Schneider of The Diners' Club, and some others who found good things in photo reproduction equipment, shell homes, foreign cars, freight-hauling and electronics.... A parallel market to Fortune Magazine's 100 Stories of Business Success -- these vest pocket biographies have a tailor- made terminus- the grey flannel suit.
