Reviews

"...contains highly readable profiles of "influential persons of Latino heritage"...indexes are all useful,..The style has the fluid feeling of a magazine interview, making it a very enjoyable reading experience. Indeed, the reading level seems about equivalent to most popular entertainment magazines, suggesting a potentially wide audience. However, I suspect that high school and public libraries will be the most interested in utilizing this resource. Academic libraries may give this title more careful consideration." --ARBA (2004)

— Sandra E. Fuentes Riggs

"Libraries already owning the first two volumes will appreciate the many important people of Hispanic heritage included here; those without its predecessors will probably find themselves looking to purchase the entire set. Recommended."--Library Media Connection (March 2004)
