An interesting story of an amazing life. Disney was a transformative creative spirit. Driven, brilliant, driven, determined--and all too human.
Walt overcame numerous adversities. Even after his unambiguous movie success, he still had to fight the dim-witted and vision-less to get his dreams accomplished. Spoiler alert: Walt was a real person, had his faults, stresses and disappointments, could be cranky and short, got angry and sad, was funny and witty, and all the other facets that makes us all human. If you want this to be a gum-drop and lolly-pop book about "Uncle Walt", you'll be disappointed. If you want to respect a man who never stopped working to get his live his dreams, this book sets this out clearly.
By speaking. Boring recitation of an otherwise thrilling, interesting and compelling story. What does he do for fun, read textbooks?
The author tries, unsuccessfully, to make this out to be more of an academic treatise than it really is. I could have lived without the footnotes, randomly inserted for effect.
Someone who has insomnia but doesn't want to take sleeping pills. Or maybe someone who is testing noise canceling headphones--put on the headphones and play this really loud on your computer speakers to see if the headphones work well or not.
If anything, it should encourage other writers in this genre that a definitive work has yet to be written. How do you write a book on stand-up comedy that isn't funny?
Lassie? Eddie, the dog from Frazier? Silent Bob?
Really? Really? Do I need any more?
