"The primary audience for this series is high school students and college undergraduates and their instructors. Students who have to provide a paper on any of the titles covered, or instructors treating one of them in their courses, will find everything they need here without having to actually read the book. Given the price of this deluxe Cliff Notes-style work and its limited coverage, reference sections of school, public, or college libraries, except for those with extremely generous budgets, should pass." --ARBA (2004)
