Funding Fathers: The Unsung Heroes of the Conservative Movement
Funding Fathers: The Unsung Heroes of the Conservative Movement

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsung Heroes of Conservative Movement Revealed, October 20, 2008
This is the only book of its kind.

For those who follow the Conservative Movement, this book documents those who made prominent conservative success stories possible. We may know about The Conscience of a Conservative, National Review, etc., but who made those possible? It took funds to get those projects started. This book finally gives credit to those individuals.

It is amazing the influence individuals can have when they choose to sacrifice their own personal wealth to advance the Conservative Movement. William Volker and Harold Luhnow created the Volker Fund which sparked a revival of free market ideas. They made possible for someone like Milton Friedman to attend the first meeting of the Mont Pelerin Society which sparked his further interest in free market ideas. They also subsidized the translation of Bastiat's The Law into English among many other projects and initiatives.

This is just one of the amazing stories contained in the book.

For anyone who wants to know who made many of the Conservative Movement's most well-known success stories possible, definitely purchase this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Insightful, but wanted more!, July 15, 2003
I was surprised by this book. It is very helpful into gaining insight to the Imagineers creative process, but I was hoping for more anecdotes on how they solved some of their most difficult design challanges or how they went about designing some of their parks. There are a few stores included, but I wanted more!
If you want more information, artwork, and pictures of Disney attractions, purchase Walt Disney Imagineering: A behind the Dreams look at making the magic real.
Otherwise, it is a great book and tells you how to apply the Imagineers creative thought process to your own life and work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tokyo Disney Sea CD a must for any Disney Fan, June 11, 2002
The music from Tokyo Disney Sea surprisingly contains a lot of lyrics. The songs from each "Port" remind me of the old attraction songs from when Epcot first opened such as "Tomorrow's Child" whereas recent U.S Disney attractions and lands have just a musical score. The songs from Disney Sea are not as cheesy as those old Epcot songs and definitely give you an audio feel for the park's themeing.
However, the strongest tracks are the ones that are lyric-free. The best are The Stormrider Suite and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The Indiana Jones music is similar, if not an exact duplicate to the music available from The Official Album from Disneyland Park.
Overall, its a great buy.
