4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Read, 25 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Disneywar: The Battle for the Magic Kingdom (Paperback)
Disneywar: The Battle for the Magic Kingdom is an interesting and engaging book describing the boardroom politic's of The Walt Disney Company during the eighties, nineties and early noughties with Michael Eisner at the helm of the ship.

The main characters in the book are Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Roy E Disney.

The writing is superb and for me their was never a dull moment in the book. Stewart's prologue to the book when he describes his experience being Goofy for the day at Disneyland is very humorous and an insight into the backstage magic that happens at the parks.

The book is also full of anecdotes about Walt Disney himself and Hollywood in general. If you have seen the Documentary 'Waking Sleeping Beauty' by Don Hahn the book discusses the story in greater depth.

I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Film, Disney and Business.
