"The focus on former Hasbro CEO Alan Hassenfeld delves into toy and game industry history, entertainment, and politics. Beyond a look at classic Hasbro brands, such as Transformers, NERF, Monopoly, Magic: The Gathering, My Little Pony, and Star Wars, the book also discusses brands from Mattel and many additional toymakers, many of which are long since closed." -- The Toy Book

"An extensively researched, engaging collection of stories that follow the fortunes of one immigrant family - the family that created the Hasbro company which birthed such iconic American toys as Mr. Potato Head." -- Brendan Kirby, The Rhode Show
