Meticulously researched and elegantly written by Newton Lee and Krystina Madej, Disney Stories discusses key moments in The Walt Disney Company's forays into digital entertainment. Detailed descriptions of the agile software development methodology used for Daily Blast, Disney's flagship online subscription product for children, are particularly interesting. Newton Lee was a key engineer and technical guru for the Walt Disney Internet group. His recollections of the early days of Disney's web presence capture some of the excitement of that time.

Format: Hardcover
This book will be of great interest to Disney historians and also to lovers of Hollywood history in general. The title mentions digital, and it does get there, but early on much of the book explores the entire history of Disney progress, both analog and digital, such as the creation of the Disney Master Narrative.

I love the Golden Era of Hollywood and I read/watch all I can about it but there are quite a few things in this book that I didn't know about Walt Disney the man. Amazing to think that this guy's vision turned into one of the biggest, best-known companies in history. The book covers the origins of Mickey Mouse, the live shows, the Mickey Mouse clubs on radio then TV, the films, the transitions into digital, it is very thorough.

What's different and compelling about this book is that most such books are written by historians but this one was clearly written by a digital person, by someone who worked with the 21st-century version of Disney. Never seen Hollywood history from this perspective but I love it.

Towards the end the author includes a personal journey, in reading through the earlier pages I was wondering about the author and his motivations for writing this book, I looked forward to finding these answers.

My final thought is that this is a book in two parts: it covers Disney history and progress in both analog and digital areas and so makes for a fascinating read. Highly recommend.

This book completes the story about Disney how it continues to innovate by moving from analog to digital. It is a good chronicle of how Disney became today's innovative media company. It's a wonderful addition to Disney book collection.
