  • "Best biography I've listened to in ..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    From the first sentence, this book hooked me in.

    Disney's life and struggle to succeed is fascinating.

    What I really appreciated was reading how he ran his company. He pushed his employees, artists and animators, to do more than they thought they could do.

    He also started the company with pool tables, fun events, and other diversions.

    I was surprised at this. In so many descriptions of how he ran the company, it sounded like the genius and drive of Steve Jobs combined with the fun of Google's offices.

    It made me realize that today's pioneers sometimes ride down the same road already paved in the past.

    Get the book. Listen to it. You'll never look at "the mouse" the same way again.

    Seven years in the making and meticulously researched - Gabler is the first writer to be given complete access to the Disney archives - this is the full story of a man whose work left an ineradicable brand on our culture but whose life has largely been enshrouded in myth.

  • "Great autobiography, but..."

    Overall

    This is everything that an autobiography should be. A good story filled with anecdotes, feelings, and behind-the-scenes information.

    There's just one thing missing. Where's Alan? I don't understand why Mr. Alda didn't read his own audio book.

    I know he's quite busy, but this would have made the book much more enjoyable.

Now Alan Alda has written a memoir as elegant, funny, and affecting as his greatest performances.

    "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"

    Overall

    With 3124 on my new SUV's odometer, I was laughing so hard listening to Tina that I clipped a cement highway divider driving to work.

    That's not the funny part.

    I kept on laughing.. Tina Fey is like comedic Oxytocin.

    Buy this book. Keep both hands on the wheel.

  • Up Till Now: The Autobiography

    "Brilliant, poignant, hilarious, touching."

    Overall

    If you can, listen to the audio version. Listening to Bill narrate his own book truly gets across his wry humour and self deprecating stories.
    One of the few audio books I've listened to multiple times. Brilliant.

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    Close up look at the evolution of the recorded business over the past 30 or so years. Lots of great detail on personalities, as well as interesting events. I've been listening to Audible for 14 years, and the narration performed by Dennis Boutsikaris was, by far, the best reading I've ever heard. The content was 5 star. The narration was 7 star.
