As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: To make the world’s first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream first as a Ph.D. student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged an early partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later and against all odds, Toy Story was released, changing animation forever.
One of the best books I've read!

Facinating read on many levels
I loved the structure of the book & hearing about the history of Pixar. But most importantly I enjoyed Eds insights about creating & sustaining a healthy work environment, where people feel comfortable enough to be candid was fascinating.
