This book is fascinating. It follows the “all-American” success story of Ty Warner, a man both incredibly lucky and manically driven by a search for perfection. We also get a glimpse into the lives of the Beanie obsessed masses, people who won and lost small fortunes at the tiny cloth hands of characters like Legs the Frog. This book is highly recommended for readers who are interested in business, sociology, or really for anyone who still remembers Peanut the Royal Blue (not Light Blue!) Elephant. ~Kelsey Myers
