From the first sentence, this book hooked me in.
Disney's life and struggle to succeed is fascinating.
What I really appreciated was reading how he ran his company. He pushed his employees, artists and animators, to do more than they thought they could do.
He also started the company with pool tables, fun events, and other diversions.
I was surprised at this. In so many descriptions of how he ran the company, it sounded like the genius and drive of Steve Jobs combined with the fun of Google's offices.
It made me realize that today's pioneers sometimes ride down the same road already paved in the past.
Get the book. Listen to it. You'll never look at "the mouse" the same way again.

"A monstrous piece of libelous junk. My parents were not the people he creates in this book, and I cannot understand why all of you who aided and abetted Gabler in writing this book, and who praise it and promote it, can do so without suffering serious qualms." - Diane Disney Miller, Walt's oldest daughter.
It's unfortunate that Neal Gabler made so many errors in this book. A partial list of errors can be found online.
