    Once upon a time, one man ruled America's greatest entertainment company. This is the untold story of his triumphs and failures, and of the revolt that cost him his kingdom.

    Story

    This book is just awesome, the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is it didn't follow up on Eisner leaving Disney. As it ends he is still there, the book was released before Eisner departure. Still it's fascinating knowing the background of how he took Disney to being a major Media company.

    Story

    Long ago in their intraspecific conflicts a violent, technologically sophisticated life form, the Kurii, destroyed their native world. They now seek another. Between Earth and Gor, or the Counterearth, and the power of the imperialistic, predatory Kurii, now ensconced in the -Steel Worlds,- a number of satellite colonies concealed amongst the debris of the asteroid belt, stands only the defensive might of the Priest-Kings of Gor.

    Story

    This book should have either been a short story, or the opening couple of chapters for Tarl heading into the barrens. However, the story has been padded with hours of Tarl, a slave girl, and captive free woman conversing.

    The long drawn out dialogs adds very little to the background of the story, or the world of Gor. I kept hoping that the dialogs would circle back around to the story arc (the hunt for a Kuri named Zarendargar.)

    The low overall rating has everything to do with contents of the book and nothing to do with Ralph Lister or his performance. With out his performance I don't know I could have gotten though the whole thing.
