Publisher's Summary

Put Walt to Work for You
How do you go from dreaming of a theme park to building one? Walt Disney laid the blueprint. Learn how he did it, and how his wisdom can guide you toward achieving the things that you dream of.
The experts told Walt it'd never work. A giant theme park, where parents and children could play together? Crazy! So Walt put all of his money into this crazy dream of his. He put his reputation on the line. Anyone else would have quit, discouraged and disillusioned, but Walt built Disneyland. How did he go from dreaming to doing? And how can you do the same, no matter what your goal?
In The Wisdom of Walt, Professor Jeffrey Barnes distills Walt Disney's vision, his knowledge, and his methods into a series of actionable lessons. Through historical vignettes about Disneyland, as well as plentiful examples and exercises, Barnes creates a framework through which you can apply Walt's wisdom to improve your career, your company, and your life.
Learn to:

Listen to your "Walter ego" and start trusting yourself
Go "beyond the berm" with the secrets of Disneyland's success
Make a "Main Street impression" on everyone you meet
Create "E-ticket experiences" that keep them coming back for more WITH THE WISDOM OF WALT, YOUR SUCCESS IS JUST A DREAM AWAY!

Great Lessons

I really enjoyed listening to this book and was engaged straight away - because of the subject matter and the performance. The principles put forth in the book are original and give a lot of food for thought. I would wholeheartedly recommend listening to this book over reading it as Al's voice adds so much more than if you read it yourself!
