"Beyond just data and numbers, readers learn fun details about their personal lives (favorite candy, favorite childhood book), habits that make them successful, and advice they would share with their teen selves. Each approximately seven-page profile features eye-catching graphics, including bold, full-color portraits.... The final chapters offer general encouragement and guidance on creating a business plan and elevator pitch, managing finances, and other necessary skills." — Kirkus Reviews
