Walt and the Promise of Progress Cityby Sam Gennawey
Walt Disney's vision for a city of tomorrow, EPCOT, would be a way for American corporations to show how technology, creative thinking, and hard work could change the world. He saw this project as a way to influence the public's expectations about city life, in the same way his earlier work had redefined what it meant to watch an animated film or visit an amusement park.
Walt and the Promise of Progress City is a personal journey that explores the process through which meaningful and functional spaces have been created by Walt Disney and his artists as well as how guests understand and experience those spaces.

I really liked the background showing how the idea for EPCOT evolved from the work Walt Disney had done in the years prior, starting before Disneyland. There were some editing mistakes that should have been caught and the book falls short in the end at answering whether EPCOT as envision by Walt Disney would really have worked. If you're a fan of Epcot and would like to add to your knowledge, you'll find this book a good addition.
