I bought this and several other Barbie identification books recently to find a Barbie I had when I was younger. I found this book to be the most useful. It was simple to use and contained sooooo many Barbies, both collectible and regular ones. It's not fancy by any means, there's no write up about individual dolls or anything. But I found the Barbie I was looking for so I'm happy!
