5.0 out of 5 stars Great Insight to the 'Man Behind The Magic', 6 Nov. 2008
By 
This review is from: Walt Disney : An American Original (Paperback)
I bought this book with a few preconceptions, I thought there'd be bits on Walt Disney and then it would mostly move onto the films (this being because I bought it in a Disney store where it was displayed with many other books like that), how glad I am that my preconception was proved wrong.

The author of the bio, Bob Thomas, has done a wonderful job of presenting the reader with the background of Walt Disney starting right with his parents emigrating to America and then following Walt's life as he moved back and forth various US states and then the development of what has become one of the world's most admired companies, right from starting in a small garage.

It shows how hard it was for Walt Disney to establish himself as a filmmaker and then to get his company noticed. What I loved about it was how Thomas displays Disney's passion for his cartoons and films, you certainly look at Disney films and the Walt Disney company with a different perspective after reading this, if there are any other Disney freaks like me then you're going to become even more obsessive after reading this.

Recommended for those wishing to know more about Walt Disney and the roots of the company, you won't be able to put it down!
