    Reading this book!

    I have never read this book before but it sounds so fantastic. I have gone to Disney once. I am 14 years old and it looks so great to go back again. I went there when I was ten years old, and I had the best time of my life.

    A heartbreaking read; a justifiably angry book in which the authors attempt to defend the memory of someone they love.

    It is truly amazing how people never seem to truly appreciate what they have in their lives until it's gone. Disney is no exception. Back during the seventies and early eighties, many kids and teenagers mocked the studio for its innocent because it had temporarily become "cool" to diss anything innocent during those years... and now that Disney has lost its innocence, I now watch today's children and teens yearning for Disney to return to the innocence "like my parents saw, I don't know what it was like." Not only that, but those same kids from that time who are now grown have often remarked on how much they wished they had enjoyed Old Disney while they still had it. It is truly a severe cultural crime that is revealed here in this book, which tells the heartbreaking story of a gentle little studio taken over by an outsider who was only interested in getting rich off of it and had no respect or appreciation for its founder or its past. Michael Eisner has a powerful reputation for being a manipulative liar who would do anything for a buck (just ask such famous folks as David Geffen!), and his current actions proving him as such as exposed here in this book. While there is a lot of impressive evidence here, the book does occasionally suffer for an occasional error (such as reporting on Donald Duck's using profanity in the cartoon "Clock Cleaners"... they don't seem to realize that that cartoon is nearly 100 years old, unless there was a new cartoon made with the same name that I'm unaware of), and also it should be pointed out that the Old Disney was not as clean as one would like to think. But even so, the events of the past are faint smudge spots compared to today's blitzkrieg. What amazes me is how certain readers have accused this of being a "hate" book full of "ignorance" when it's obvious that the authors have been around to experience Old School Disney before Eisner's corruption. Such remarks say a lot more about the said individuals' personal morals and selfishness than about Walt's studio. Why are the authors so upset? Let me explain it in the purest, simplest term that anyone can be guaranteed to understand: the Schweizers are protecting someone they love. Walt Disney was no saint, but God knows he certainly tried his best, and both his dignity and his legacy are seriously at stake: Walt can't reply for himself. Would *you* like it if you created a studio, only to somehow see after your own death that someone else has transformed it into the exact opposite of what you had intended because you weren't around to stop it? How about someone who was doing it who was known to be a weasly liar who didn't appreciate your legacy unless it made him rich? That's what's happening here, and everyone who knows what Disney originally was has every right to be outraged. But there's one little detail I wish the authors had pointed out at the book's end, and that is that those who continue to be rightfully upset about all this can take heart over one faint glimmer of hope: there is a battle going on at Disney attempting to straighten things out, and many are going head-to-head against Eisner. And so far, it looks like Eisner is losing. I wish the authors had gotten more information on this situation as well (maybe they will in a future updated version of the book?). A powerful read. Not one you'd like to re-read, mind you, but still an important and exposing one. Just keep in mind as you do that the authors are not doing this to "rip up on" Disney; on the contrary, they love Disney very much. They just want to studio to be set right again. That's the underlying outcry this book makes, and it is a worthy one. And because the Disney company is so powerfully influential, that makes this quite possibly one of the most important demands for justice ever to be published.

    The untold truth behind Disney!

    I am recommending this book to everybody I know that loves Disney. For the simple fact that I too, LOVED Disney but being a Christian believer, I felt the need to do some research on it's background. It's a shame that Disney was once a family place and very innocent in their doings and NOW has become the place where any parent would avoid going too. I also enjoyed and took pleasure knowing that the authors are not Christians who just wanted to bash the well- known name. For if they were, many heads would turn away from this book. But this book is merely about the TRUTH OF DISNEY! It's a eye opener for parents of small children along with individuals without any children. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOOK TO READ. Never has a dull moment.
