This being my third Disney biography, i must say i was boderline apalled. The book had some good insight and info, but overll it seemed that the author had an almost personal vendetta against Walt. He didn't seem to ever give Walt the benefit of the doubt. I know Walt Disney had flaws, but the author could've used some more tact in his explanation of them. Again, pretty decent read, just a little harsh for the most successful and imaginative business man of our time. You would be much better served reading the Bob Thomas biography wich i thought was terrific
Depressing book. We think of Walt as a legend and this book made me really sad. Yes I understand that Mosley was trying to capture Walt's life and if I was not such a big Disney fan I might of thought twice about why I liked Disney
This would be a wonderful book for people to read if they wanted to know anyhting about Walt Disney. This is an infromative book. It tells you about how it was founded and how much it has progressed over the years. From an Idea , To being real.
Leonard Mosley has done a wonderful job by accurately documenting Walt Disney's life. Most of us do not want to disrupt the memories that we have of a true American legend. According to Mosley, his book was not ment to set out and upset or destroy the image of Walt Disney. A true biography tells all of a person's life, good and bad times both. Mosley has done an excellent job portraying Disney. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the man that created the Disney legacy. I also recommend this book to any American Studies student for their biography project.
