ReviewsSeries Review: World's Most Influential People
"This ambitious series corrals world history's major doers and thinkers whose work challenges and inspires people consistently, or incites change or reform on a large scale. People of many races and nationalities are represented. Careful wording bridges one chronologically arranged article to the next, enhancing the idea that one person's word builds on an earlier individual's accomplishments...this series is a goldmine."
