Anyone who knows me, knows I don’t read for the fun of it. I don’t have the attention span to sit still long enough. I couldn’t even tell you the last time a read a book cover to cover and especially not just for fun. It may have taken me longer than I wanted but I did it!
This book depicts Walt’s life from birth to his passing December 15th, 1966. It is a detailed bigraphy written by Bob Thomas about the the world-famous producer of cartoons, animated features, and nature films, chronicling his early failures in the industry and his successes. It was published in 1976.
As I sit here and realize it’s over…what now? What’s next? I need to read more, I need more disney knowledge. I feel almost selfish as I sit here and cling to this book because I don’t want to admit that it’s done. Maybe I should just read it again?!?! No, I need to share this amazing story with others. Others who will read this and fall in love with the Disney words, the philosophy, the passion they have in everything they do.
I hope that passing this book on to someone who hopefully will see deep down and learn that, “laughter is timeless, imagination has no age and dreams are forever”. – Walt Disney
