Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Walter Elias Disney, perceived as a "talented hick" when he first arrived in Hollywood in 1923, ran the studio he founded as a "usually benevolent dictator." After his death in 1956, the company took on a more consciously corporate style, and by 1984, writes Flower, had lost its direction and was being stalked by raiders. In an unexpected move, the corporation appointed as CEO Michael Eisner, a "story man" who had risen through the creative ranks, not the business side, to become a top exec at Paramount. Eisner brought the desired "kiss of craziness " to the helm of Disney, turning the dormant giant around and leading it into seven years of phenomenal growth. Flower, coauthor of Age Wave , unwinds a riveting narrrative about a company that rususcitated itself by courting creativity and risk. He also probes the tension between Disney's legacy of "wholesomeness" and the strong-arm management techniques that abetted its expansion. Photos.

From Library Journal

In this year's second book on the Disney Company's turnaround (following Ron Grover's The Disney Touch , LJ 4/1/91), Flower focuses on CEO Michael Eisner's command over Disney's resurgence. He sketches Eisner's formative years at ABC-TV and his wonder-working at Paramount Studios prior to his taking the helm of a demoralized Disney after a brutal takeover attempt. Flower also shows how Eisner revitalized the company's creative departments and retooled a somnolent movie mill into more of a "repertory company." At the same time, Eisner drew on the management principles of Scrooge McDuck in controlling costs, leading to some unhappy relations with Disney's unions. This version of the Disney tale is well worth acquiring on its own or to complement Grover for a complete picture of the rejuvenation of a company with a special place in the hearts of several generations. Recommended for all business collections.
