    The Pixar Touch is a lively chronicle of Pixar Animation Studios' history and evolution, and the "fraternity of geeks" who shaped it. With the help of visionary businessman Steve Jobs and animating genius John Lasseter, Pixar has become the gold standard of animated filmmaking, beginning with a short special effects shot made at Lucasfilm in 1982 all the way up through the landmark films Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, and others.

    "Awesome story for a 3d geek like me."

    Story
    What did you love best about The Pixar Touch?

    Being a 3d geek who did animation on my Amiga using lightwave, it was fascinating to learn the history of anti-aliasing and motion blur. The story also goes into the behind the scenes of the Pixar block busters. Great listen and I couldn't put it down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the history of 3d animation and the pixar movies.


    What does David Drummond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sounded natural and unforced,


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some of the background behind the Disney and Pixar relationship was fascintating.

    In our extroverted business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked, or misunderstood. But being an introvert doesn’t mean you can’t be a great leader. Citing examples of highly successful leaders like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, Jennifer Kahnweiler shows that introverts can build on their quiet strength and make it a source of great power.

    "This is AWFUL."

    Would you try another book from Jennifer Kahnweiler and/or Jennifer Kahnweiler?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Kahnweiler’s performances?

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Stupid.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an important topic that needs a serious book written about it. Unfortunately a bunch of random anecdotes written by someone who isn't even an introvert does not work. Most of the topics she covers apply to anyone, not specifically introverts and are better covered in other business books. Really disappointed in this book.
