Book Note: Frank B. Gilbreth, Cheaper by the Dozen

I read this book about 18-Nov-2012. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1948. This note was last modified Sunday, 02-Dec-2012 21:05:51 PST.

This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.


By Frank G. Gilbreth, Jr., and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey.

Non-fiction, so spoilers don't apply. This is an old classic story of the family of one of the first time-and-motion experts—certainly the first married pair of time-and-motion experts. Makes growing up as one of twelve children sound not as horrible as I would expect.

It's basically anecdotes strung together, and doesn't get too deeply into anything. Fun, but light.
