What can I say? This is hands down the best biography Ive ever read, and Ive read a lot of them. Especially about Walt Disney. Anyone who knows me well, knows that he is a personal hero of mine, and I really enjoyed this honest presentation of the man with all his strengths and faults layed bare. Walt Disney is an American hero--the creator of Mickey Mouse, and a man who changed the face of American culture. After years of research, with the full cooperation of the Disney family and access to private papers and letters, Bob Thomas produced the definitive biography of the man behind the legend--the unschooled cartoonist from Kansas City who went bankrupt on his first movie venture but became the genius who produced unmatched works of animation. Complete with a rare collection of photographs, Bob Thomas' biography is a fascinating and inspirational work that captures the spirit of Walt Disney. Read this and other great biographies by Bob Thomas.
