The book arrived today and I was sorely disappointed to find that, contrary to how Amazon lists it (since publication and up through today, 11/9/11) the book is a paperback NOT a hardback. I spent upwards of $70 on this title with the understanding that, oftentimes, "academic" type books are fairly high priced, particularly for hardback editions. $75 for a paperback- less than 300 pages, however, puts this title firmly in the category of unreasonably priced. The book is nothing more than a compendium of credits for actors who have provided voices for Disney films. Most of this information is readily available online, primarily on IMDB. There is a two page introduction and the rest is lists - there is little to no editorial content in the book.
While a nice resource to have handy, the book is absolutely not worth the price.
UPDATE: While finishing this up, I just went and checked around online. Not only does Amazon list this as a hardcover when it is a paperback, they list it with an original retail price of $125.00 and an Amazon discounted price of "only" $75.00 - a $50 savings! However, the book sells for $75 directly from the publisher. The retail price is $75.00, not $125.00.
UPDATE 2: following my complaint to Amazon (and return of the book), Amazon did update the listing, so it now is no longer listed as a hardcover.
And not a singel photo or pictuur from the voice actors or charters.
And bat shap paper for this price.
