    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.

    Cameron says: "If you like Disney, Pixar, or Apple..."
    "An interesting look behind the screen."

    What did you love best about The Pixar Touch?

    An in depth look at the history and people that brought the revolutionary studio to the forefront of animation.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The look at the intentions, aspirations, and motivations of the creative minds behind Pixar is a telling parable to others looking to make a creative mark in their own industries.


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

    The release of Toy Story and how the world of animation turned a corner that day forever.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this not only as an entertaining read but as an inspirational tale for creatives and tech industries leaders.

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Allan says: "Important Theme - Repetitive Presentation"
    "MUST read for creatives looking to make their mark"

    Story
    Where does Start with Why rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Simon Sinek passionately reads his game changing look at why successful brand cultures are successful and how you can take on a "Why" mindset.


    What other book might you compare Start with Why to and why?

    From a design perspective Start with Why is to concept what Elements of Typographic Style is to type.


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

    Sinek is clearly passionate about his quest to bring the philosophy of "Why" to anyone who will listen and its clear in his delivery.


    Any additional comments?

    Start with Sinek's amazing TED talk by the same name and prepare to have your mind blown.
