Whether you call her Barbie, Barbara Millicent Roberts or a negative impact on young girls, she has been around for 50 years and has no intentions of moving out. She's been an astronaut, sister, mom, hair dresser, politician, Olympic gymnast and the President of the United States (read about all of her careers here). She has been praised, debased, remodeled and studied throughout the decades and author Tanya Lee Stone discusses it all in her book The Good, The Bad and The Barbie: A Doll's History and Her Impact on Us ($14). Pick up a copy, call up your girlfriends and get gabbing!
