Merle RubinAlthough written to a high standard of scholarship, American National Biography is designed for the general reader. The writers and editors have sought to make each entry as clear as possible, yet have managed to do so without dumbing things down. Many of the entries are remarkable for their subtlety and acumen....Depth is not sacrified to breadth. The entries are comparable to what you might find in a more specialized reference work...American National Biography will assuredly fulfill its destiny as an invaluable reference tool. Despite the wealth of information, each volume is of manageable size, with printing sufficiently large not to induce eyestrain, a good thing, as it is also likely to induce compulsive browsing.
