A great look at the inner workings of Disney starting from it's beginnings all the way to the loss of Pixar. Really fast read for the amount of pages (500 something something). You really want to know more about how much Micheal Isner is a total jerk, and he really is.

0 wishes, 0 posted, but I find this to be a very detailed (including the dirt) revelation of the Walt Disney Co. as a business while Mr. Eisner ran it. I followed the tale of Roy E. Disney helping to oust Walt's son-in-law who was tapped to lead the firm after Mr. Disney's untimely demise. It is well written, for example it opens with Eisner's first day arrival on the Burbank lot and ends with a reference to that day as he departs after more than twenty years. He had not even seen many Disney films when he was appointed.
Excellent index that I used to look into the parts that especially interested me. Photo section and sources listed. Mr. Stewart obtained interviews with many people to supplement the large amount of published sources he consulted.
