Gilbreth is perhaps best known as the mother of 12 from her affectionate, often humorous portrait of family life in Cheaper by the Dozen (1948). In addition to raising a large family, she had a long, successful professional career in pioneering motion studies and industrial psychology. She earned a doctorate and collaborated with her husband, Frank Gilbreth, until his sudden death in 1924. In this autobiography, begun in 1941 after her husband's death, she describes her childhood and her early work and family life. Regrettably, the autobiography stops in 1941, more than 30 years before she died. In those later years, she continued on her own to publish books, lecture at colleges, work on presidential commissions, and amass a collection of honorary degrees and awards. There is not yet a full-length biography of Lillian Gilbreth, but this autobiography offers insights into the personal and professional life of a remarkably successful woman. Appropriate for larger public and women's studies collections.?Patricia A. Beaber, Trenton State Coll. Lib., Lawrenceville, NJ
