This truly is one of the best books I've ever read on how to manage creative people well. But there's so much more to it than that. It's entertaining. It's engaging. It's educational. It made me want to work for Pixar. They put as much thought into how their employees interact and engage with each other as they do their next script and movie idea. This book is truly inspiring. READ IT.

Wow!  This book is amazing.  I am in education, but it think the principles he describes about  how to run a company where you empower good people to strive for excellence  have broad application.  If you have ever wondered how Pixar has managed to have 14 successive number one movies, you will want to read this.

This holds your attention from the start. If you have followed along with the animation story at all then the details add rich color to the history of the films produced and the growth of the industry. I found it to be captivating, even if you had never seen a Pixar film the story is filled with the sense of working to bring to life ideas that are only imagined. The success of the company is secondary to the struggles and the growth of the individuals who championed a new way of making films come to life.

A very enjoyable book! I learned a lot about how much thought and work goes into creating a high quality animated film and about some really interesting management techniques being used at Pixar. Other companies, not just creative companies, should consider using some of these management techniques as well.
