Sometimes I forget Walt Disney was a man, not just a company
on March 24, 2011
Sometime in February I decided to start a rotation of non-fiction, classic fiction and then modern fiction books. I wanted to make sure that I was reading non-fiction and classic fiction books instead of my usual fiction only regimen.
Once again the top 100 free books on the Kindle came to the rescue. I was glancing through the list when I cam across Walt Disney's Way. I realized that I sometimes forget that Disney is a company founded by one guy. I just look at Disney as one huge company that has always been huge, so I decided this was the next book on my list to read.
The book is a very short book in a series of books by New Word City that highlight a person's life and give insight into how they became who they are. As the description of the book says there was quite a difference in the way that some people got to see Walt Disney. Some people saw him as a family man who would do whatever he could to help others and other people saw him as a hard-driving employer who would make them do more than they ever thought they could do.
Either way this book is a quick read and very interesting. It was neat to see how someone could come from a background like Walt had and still end up creating one of the largest and most successful companies in the world. The best part of this book though was seeing how Disney, the company, almost ceased to exist because of failures that tempted to send them into bankruptcy.
If you are looking for a quick read about Disney, I definitely suggest this.
If you like my review I just recently started a blog chronicling my first year with my Kindle. I am providing reviews of the books I have already read (since Christmas) and the ones I will be reading for the rest of this year. Check out my blog. I would love to start conversations and get some suggestions for good books while telling people what I think. Check out my profile for the website.
