5.0 out of 5 stars The World Behind The World, 11 Dec 1997
By A Customer
Like many people, I am absorbed by things Disney, especially the parks. "Since The World Began" satisfies that need wonderfully, but adds much more - how many of us know about the special zoning and self-government that makes the Disney property in Florida unique? That Disney World had the first operating 911 emergency system? That a vast network of self-operating gates and levees keep the water table intact? The infrastructure of this massive community is a testament to the most forward-thinking engineering in - no pun intended - the world. From the multi-layered transportations systems to the enormous "basement" of The Magic Kingdom, Jeff Kurtti's book tells not only of rides and cartoon characters, but of the fascinating behind-the-scenes efforts to create a truly new world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney Fans - Get This Book, 12 April 1998
By A Customer
This so far is the best book on Disney I have found. It's simple, if you are a fan of Disney you will love this book, you'll have a tough time setting it down. The photos are great, and the text is informative, interesting, and detailed. The author is a BIG fan of Disney, and worked there too, so it's coming from someone who knows Disney.

By A Customer
If you have been saving your pennies for a trip to Disney World during their 15-month-long 25th Anniversary Celebration, here's a reason for you to withdraw $14.95 from the trip fund. A new book is about to hit bookshelves, and it is something every lover of Disney World will want to own. <P> "Since the World Began; Walt Disney World; The First 25 Years," a large paperback book from Hyperion Publishing, is a colorful and interesting guide to Disney World's history, its present, and its future. <P> This 186-page book has something for everyone. The Disney World novice planning his or her first visit will find helpful information about the parks and onsite lodging. The book will mean even more, however, to those of you who have visited the resort frequently, for this exhaustive resource leaves no stone unturned in its examination of the popular tourist destination. The author, Jeff Kurtti, has compiled hundreds of photos, facts, and stories relating to Disney World's dev

A wonderful insight into the world of what I believe to be the best entertainment organisation in the world. Only read this if you want to know the secrets - it's a fantastic way to appreciate the American way of Showbusiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Walt Disney World in a book!, 16 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Being a huge Walt Disney World fan, I truly loved this book and couldn't put it down! Each section of this book is fully illustrated and very in-depth. I have spoken to Jeff Kurtti about this book and he sure did his homework in writing this masterpiece. Anyone who wants to learn about the history of Walt Disney World, look no further! Jeff is an excellent writer who brings first-hand knowledge & experience of Walt Disney World to the table. Buy it, it's excellent!
