Enjoyable account of the company's less recognizable founder
on 30 December 1998
This book is a breath of fresh air if you've read some portrayals of Walt Disney and the controversies around his life. I realize that Bob Thomas's book on Walt (An American Original) is a bit rosey, but this volume on Roy seems a bit more objective (or less propaganda-ish). It gives you many quotes from current and former employees and does succeed in giving the reader a bit more perspective on Roy and his contributions to a great American institution. For the casual Disney fan, there is plenty of important Disney family and company background, and the book moves at a quick-enough pace despite the many facts to absorb. I recommend this book to all those interested in Disney history or trivia.
