The main flaw in the book is that it has absolutely no photos, drawings, or other visuals of any kind. Concept art exists for many of these rides and, in fact, Smith spends quite a lot time giving the reader descriptions of the art. But those description are no substitute for actually seeing it. I assume that the book's budget or permission issues with Disney kept the book from having any visuals.
The book could also have used a good editor to rein in some of Smith's overly exuberant prose.
But, hey, this is a fan's book. It was written by a fan for other fans and on that basis, I very much enjoyed it.
As thankful as we are for the WDW we have, it is exciting (and at times frustrating or disappointing) to learn what could have been.
The stories are well-researched, well-told and, although at times brutally honest, they brim with warmth and reverence for all things Disney.
I have loaned this book to different family members and friends, with varying levels of interest in history, reading and WDW itself, and they have all enjoyed it.
