If you want to know what personal events lie in the history of all the major players that contribute to Pixar's culture, both friend and foe, this is the book for you. It goes into many backstories of the Disney Feature Animation Studios, Apple Computer, Industrial Light & Magic and other such behemoths because they're all very relevant to shaping Pixar. I already knew much of this general story before reading, but I learned sooooo much more and found every chapter enlightening and reflective. I ended up buying this book as a gift for a fellow artist, I couldn't stop talking about it to him.
In short, if you enjoyed the Pixar Story on the WALL-E DVD, you'll find this even more delicious and much more detailed.

I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I am a Computer Engineer by profession and so I couldn't get enough of the history of computer graphics at Pixar. More than a story of a company, this is the story of a collection of some of the greatest technical minds in graphics at the time who just happened to want to make films.
A must read for anyone in a technical field.

Any additional comments?
This is a great book to learn about the history of the pioneers of computer animation, particularly interesting to see this side of the story and outsiders views on the Disney corp after reading the Walt Disney biography. The book has some interesting facts and is an easy passive listening experience.

It was a lot more in depth than i thought into the company of pixar and everyone involved. As a filmmaker i found it very inspiring
