    On the September 10th MouseTunes show, they interview Larry Pontius and talk a little about the book.

    I highly recommend it! Here is a quick review I wrote a few years ago about the book:

    Disney's most famous urban legend comes to life in the novel, "Waking Walt". The book takes the "what if" approach about Walt Disney's death and puts and exciting spin on it. What would Walt think about the state of the Disney Company? What would other companies do if Walt suddenly appeared on the radar today? What is most interesting is that with all of the 2004 events, it makes this book seem more fact than fiction. All I can say is, "Where is Walt when we need him?" This novel is a MUST for any casual or avid Disney fan.

    It is a good light read if you can handle all the editing mistakes. They were driving me absolutely crazy the first time I read it.
