Insightful, but wanted more! 15 July 2003
By Patrick X. Coyle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was surprised by this book. It is very helpful into gaining insight to the Imagineers creative process, but I was hoping for more anecdotes on how they solved some of their most difficult design challanges or how they went about designing some of their parks. There are a few stores included, but I wanted more!
If you want more information, artwork, and pictures of Disney attractions, purchase Walt Disney Imagineering: A behind the Dreams look at making the magic real.
Otherwise, it is a great book and tells you how to apply the Imagineers creative thought process to your own life and work.

From Figment to Imagination 12 July 2003
By K. Sampanthar - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is fun collection of essays from Disney's Imagineers. Its a small book, but truly inspirational. I would have liked a more in-depth book on the Imagineer's thoughts on creativity, so I was a little disappointed.
But I have to admit, that this book was fun to read and did trigger many creative thoughts. The creative energy of the Imagineers did come through in their essays.
I hope there is a future book, which does for the Disney Imagineers what "The Art Innovation" did for IDEO.
Only 4 stars because I really was hoping for more substance, but I would still recommend this book to someone looking for quick burst of creative inspiration.

A short fun delightful tease into Disney's secret world 16 Nov. 2003
By A. Reza Ruyan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am still waiting a detailed history book about the Disney Imaginers
Or maybe a book about how they think.
I was hopping that this book was it, but it wasn't.
This book is a collection of essays, thoughts, and fun tid-bits about the idea
Of imagineering written by the Imaginers themselves.
Its fun to read and give a teaser glimpse into Disney's best keep secret.

Entertaining, But Could Use More Substance 21 Aug. 2003
By bob68 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is basically a collection of short essays on creativity written by Imagineers. It does contain some gems (and a few entertaining stories), but doesn't give away any real Imagineering secrets. And the illustrations are cute. My bottom line is it comes across as a multi-part pep talk.

Nice short read. 4 Jan. 2006
By Casey Wireman - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Imagineering Way Ideas to Ignite Your Creativity is an interesting, enlightening, and inspiring look at the creative process that the Imagineers of Walt Disney World go through when tackling one of their larger than life problems. Whether you're an engineer, artist, musician, or anything in between, this book will definitely help you in solving problems creatively on the job or in everyday life.

While the anecdotes that are provided in the essays are entertaining, the overall message to be gained from this book is to stop talking about doing things and start doing them, even if it isn't the right solution to the problem at hand, just start doing something.

Reading this has provided me with many ideas, and hopefully the kick in the pants I needed to start doing something.
