Reviews

"Barbie Forever is a book that will give you tremendous insight into how one doll and one company could take the world by force. This is a great coffee table read and would be perfect in anyone's home" * The Nerdy Girl Express *
"The copiousness of rare photos and in-depth narrative elevates this book above any mere collectible coffee-table book to be glanced through idly then discarded. This is a photo book, a study book, to be loved and enjoyed by anyone who has known the joy of immersing themselves in the world of the original girl who could grow up to be anything." * Critical Blast *
"Just as I treasured my Barbies, I'll treasure Barbie Forever. Wow-what a pearl! From the beautiful front cover to the detailed timeline on the back pages, this quality, hardback coffee table book brings so many memories to the surface." * Book Pleasures *
"Popular culture collections will want to make room for this eye-catching compilation." * Booklist *
"Author and historian Robin Gerber has created the consummate coffee table Barbie book, Barbie Forever, the most detailed, full-color portrait of this beloved doll!" * Gay NYC Dad *
