"Gale has such a good thing going with this series that it is hard to come up with improvements. The value remains unquestionable. Unlike anything else in print or on the Internet, these overviews of careers hold the magic of the moment, the cause and ongoing purpose of creative lives." -- ARBA (American Reference Books Annual) 1999
