Who:  Ruth  Handler, of Barbie fame.

What: A memoir of sorts.

Why: To tell the story of the woman behind Mattel and breast Cancer

When: 1950's through 1990's and a bit more

Where: Mostly California

How was it?  This was an easy book to read, very informative and engaging.  I liked reading about a woman who took a leadership role during a time when women were not welcomed at the helm.  Toys are always fascinating, and the details from toy shows and such made this a page turner.  Good!
