We've all read about the experts: the artists, the scientists, the engineers - that special group of people known as Imagineers for The Walt Disney Company. But who are they? How did they join the team? What is it like to spend a day in their shoes?
Disney Legend Marty Sklar wants to give back to fans and answer these burning questions. When Marty was president of Walt Disney Imagineering, he created a list of principles and ideals for the team, aptly named Mickey's Ten Commandments. Using this code of standards as his organizational flow, Marty provides listeners with insights and advice from himself and dozens of hands-on Imagineers from around the globe. It's a true insider's look like no other!

Not what I expected
Maybe if it had more substance
Less reading email from people that happen to mention what a legend Marty Sklar is and more of how the book begins. It would be more interesting.
I don't know how that is possible... Have Marty Sklar sitting in front of a computer reading emails that all have a comment with how great Marty Sklar is and deleting the others?
I am a Disney fan and certainly admire from a business perspective what they have done in the parks, and Sklar is one of the few that is still around. It is very interesting to hear the approach to creating this successful theme park enterprise.
Overall, I believe I misunderstood the purpose of the book, I'm not a kid looking to be an imagineer, and not looking for career advice-which most of the second half of the book refers to with inserted email messages from previous Marty contacts. Maybe if I was it would have been more meaningful
I also found the book self serving. Sklar has no problem reading things he wrote that say how great Marty Sklar is. Though one of the key messages in the book is TEAMwork, Marty spends much time using the word "I" typically around the great things he has done and the great things people have said and wrote about him.
