"An interesting collection of short biographies of people who lived extraordinary lives or did extraordinary things. Most of the sections were just the right size, neither being too short and omitting too much or too long either. They also provided bibliographies for each section for more in-depth reading on the subjects."
"Of course, it’s not only for the young - anyone interested in finding out a little more about the people behind our history, it’s a good book to dip into."
- The Library Thing Reviews.
'Entertaining, and stripped down to the interesting bits, it is a great read. An inspiring read for lads and their dads, history pupils - and pub quiz fans' - News of the World.
'It should have a powerful and instructive effect on the children who read it' - The Telegraph.
