    How to Be Like is a "character biography" series: biographies that also draw out important lessons from the life of their subjects. In this new book - by far the most exhaustive in the series - Pat Williams tackles one of the most influential people in recent history. While many recent biographies of Walt Disney have reveled in the negative, this audiobook takes an honest but positive look at the man behind the myth. For the first time, the book pulls together all the various strands of Disney's life into one straightforward, easy-to-listen-to tale.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I didn't know anything about Walt Disney when I started this book. Now I'm an admirer and big fan. This work brought Walt to life for me and I highly recommend it!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The lessons from Walt's life that can be applied to anyone's life.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Christy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No tears, but I have been running it through my mind and discussing it with friends every since.


    Any additional comments?

    We all can be dreamers and imagineers!

  • Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy: A Righteous Gentile vs. the Third Reich

    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    A life well lived! The story of an inspiring Godly man living through one of the worst periods in history, yet faithful to death.
