Any fan of Barbie dolls or collector of the dolls should also have BARBIE AND RUTH: THE STORY OF THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS DOLL AND THE WOMAN WHO CREATED HER. It tells of a Jewish immigrant child and business pioneer who founded Mattel, was forced out after a business scandal, and who began her own business, eventually changing the toy world. Business as well as general-interest collections will find this an inspirational read based on original research, interviews, and previously unpublished material.
