I really like this series of 'Who Was' biographies. They are quick and easy to read yet give quite a bit of information about the person. The only ones I did not like was the Susan B. Anthony one and The Charles Darwin. The authors of these two were not as good of writers as the other 'Who was" biographies. I am a former teacher and would recommend these for students to read.
