Synopsis

"Barbie and her creator, the sharp-elbowed gal who built the biggest toy company, have a story to tell." -Time Barbie and Ruth by Ruth Gerber is the remarkable true story of the world's most famous toy and the woman who created her. It is a fascinating account of how one visionary woman and her product changed an industry and sparked a lasting debate about women's roles. At once a business book, a colorful portrait of an extraordinary female entrepreneur, and a breathtaking look at a cultural phenomenon, Barbie and Ruth is a must read for anyone who ever owned a Barbie doll-a book Publishers Weekly calls, "a stirring biography...a fine study of success and resilience."
