Looking at it again, the strengths of this guide are the exhaustive technical details relating to each short in the series (production dates, release dates, video availability, exhaustive production credits) There are also production notes for each film. There's an appendix on Unproduced Silly Symphonies, music and books. The only things that could have made this edition better would be more illustrations, especially in the section on the unproduced Silly Symphonies and more details on story development of each film. Either way this volume is highly recommended for Disney enthusiasts.
Hopefully Kaufman will write about the Mickey Mouse shorts in the future.
