    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

    Disney War is one of the most thought provoking and insightful looks inside the company that has transformed American imagination. The investigative journalistic style brought to life by Stewart takes you on a thrill ride over the 20 year reign of Michael Eisner. Some of the industry giants such as Katzenberg, Roy E Disney, and Igar surfaced during this history lesson of the Walt Disney Company.

    Make sure your seat belts are fastened as you travel through history with a look back at Disney's humble beginnings, and then fashioned itself into a movie-making powerhouse that saw hits like The Lion King, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Lost while losing out on some TV hits like Survivor, CSI and The Apprentice.

    This rare look inside the Disney Corporation was eye-opening and a wonderful read. I would highly recommend this read to anyone who would love to peer inside what made Disney tick or didn't.

  • The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything... Fast!

    In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you'll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well. What do you want to learn?

    Story

    Josh takes you through a comprehensive plan for learning anything quickly. That first 20 hours is crucial in your ability to learn (whatever it is you want to learn) and eventually master.

    In addition, he walks you through different examples of how he learned to program, play an instrument and learn a new touch typing method. I listened to the examples I wanted to and moved on (as he gave us permission to).

    All in all, I think it is a book I would go back to again and again to refresh my skills and challenge myself to learn something new.

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    Story

    Catch Me If You Can by Frank Abagnale was a thrilling listen as you joined Frank on his exploitive adventures and his daring escapades. Abagnale got an early start to a life of crime, and he became one of the best master check forgers in the history of the US and world. He survived a harsh prison sentence in France, and lived lavishly on other people's money. Abagnale globe-trotted as a Pan Am pilot, and worked his charm to the max.

    This book details his life on the run as he evaded the FBI and other law-enforcement. Pick up this book for exciting adventure full of thrill and intrigue as you follow one of the greatest criminals of all-time.
