Walt Disney by Neal Gabler
A Tale of Two Cities - Okay, so how can I give such a classic only 2 stars? Sorry, but it was a struggle to get through so I rated it an OK. I am trying to read one classic a month during 2011 so this was my pick for February. I wasn’t able to read any other books during the month because I was forcing myself to get through this one and have to admit I found myself finding other things to do instead. Alright, it did get interesting towards the last 30% or so, but I wouldn’t add it as a fun winter read.

Walt Disney - Walt Disney was a true visionary whose desire for escape, iron determination and obsessive perfectionism transformed animation from a novelty to an art form, first with Mickey Mouse and then with his feature films–most notably Snow White, Fantasia, and Bambi. In his superb biography, Neal Gabler shows us how, over the course of two decades, Disney revolutionized the entertainment industry. In a way that was unprecedented and later widely imitated, he built a synergistic empire that combined film, television, theme parks, music, book publishing, and merchandise. Walt Disney is a revelation of both the work and the man–of both the remarkable accomplishment and the hidden life.
