"If you want the complete picture of the history of Walt Disney, you have to also see it through the eyes of his partner and brother Roy Disney. Actually this book has more on Walt than most bios devoted to Walt, and you cannot tell the Walt story without Roy."
"Walt started every project with the selection of music, very important to the story in his eyes. At times the Sherman brothers wrote music that preceded the script and songs were written to tell the story, or shortcut the story."
"As prolific as the Walt Disney studio was under Walt, he had many more ideas than they were able to film, and choices had to be made. Here are representation and inspiration art from the projects that were uncompleted works."
"Walt moved from Animation to live action movies, producing a wealth of live action films that continue to entertain today. He was responsible for entire generations having quality family movies to enjoy. This is a great reference book on the behind the scenes filming the great theatrical live action movies"
"Then Walt discovered television and was one of the first studio heads to embrace rather than oppose the future it held. This is the best reference book on all Walt Disney studio television shows and series for television, huge book that has it all. Good reviews on this book, and I agree."
"Walt dreamed of Disneyland employees that would be wholesome and upbeat in appearance, efficient and helpful so that a customer could feel like a guest and not a nuisance. Here is how they created the workforce and trained the employees to the mindset of "Cast" and Guests"."
"A big box set of 3 CD's of music selected from Walt Disney film and Disneyland, but more important is the big full length book inside on Walt's influence on the music and his studio composers. There are some nice rare photos here I have not seen in other books."
"One of the most important, and certainly the biggest, animation art book on Walt Disney studio animated classics ever produced. Full size pictures of concept art, background paintings, animation cleanups, finished cells, and much more. 500 photos in chronological order, in oversized 15" x 12' book, weighs 6 pounds. Make sure you get the 1982 version, not the 1992 reprint, there is a difference."
"Publication on the legacy of the creativity of Walt Disney. If you are interested in rare stories and behind the scenes info on the theme parks, film and music - you need to read this and the other issues. No longer in print, rare."
