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.
