Behind Every Great Man shares parallels with Princesses Behaving Badly. Both have brief, often interesting vignettes. The latter is targeted at the 11-15 year old audience, but has meticulous footnotes and academically acceptable references for those who wish to go beyond Val-Speak. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Wagman-Geller's work. The writing is just a whisper above middle school although adult sexuality is freely expressed. The sloppy editing ( the SF Quake was 1906 not 1907) and second-rate academic research ( all recent internet articles) is unworthy of a serious historian or even(California) high school English teacher.
