Summary:

Lillian Miller Gilbreth, born in 1878, put her privileged life aside for one of adventure and challenge. She and her husband, Frank, became efficiency experts by studying the actions of factory workers. They ran their household of eleven children efficiently too. When Frank suddenly died, Lillian faced enormous worry. Where would the family live? How would she pay for their food, clothing, and education? When the Brooklyn Borough Gas Company eventually hired her to improve kitchen design, Lillian interviewed over four thousand women to discover what didn't work in their own kitchens. It was only the beginning. In her lifetime, Lillian Gilbreth was an efficiency expert, an industrial engineer, an inventor, a psychologist, an author, and a professor. Lillian was the first woman elected to the National Academy of Engineering, the subject of two movies, and had a U.S. postage stamp issued in her honor.
