    New book from Ayefour

    Anyone else out there reading this new book from Chad Emerson / Ayefour Publishing:

    Amazon.com: Four Decades of Magic: Celebrating the First Forty Years of Disney World (9780615431017): Chad Denver Emerson: Books

    It's a compilation of articles from various Disney web folks, covering the first forty years of WDW history. Chapters are all over the place covering everything from the history of the monorail system to the story behind the Hoop-Dee-Do Review.

    Our hero and leader Lou M. has a chapter on resort concepts that never made it, and Jim Korkis even has a couple of chapters.

    This is all good stuff the every WDW fan would enjoy. I haven't finished reading it yet, but I'm really digging it.

    Been wanting to get this. Maybe at the next Disneyana Fan Club show.

    It's on my Kindle but haven't started reading it yet. Actually saving this to read on my plane journey to Orlando in May - looking forward to starting it.

    Re: New book from Ayefour

    Finished it a week ago; excellent book.

    Thought Foxx Nolte's chapter about the Pirates ghosts was the best, followed by Mike Lee's WRE history.

    Re: New book from Ayefour

    I want to read this...just have no time because I have so much reading for my classes (my Poli Sci class, plus 2 other social science class, and english 101 which all require reading) that I haven't even finished the Vault of Walt yet (have been stuck at the same spot, about 20% to go for 2 months now). I have that on my kindle , but kind of regret not getting the print version. So, my question here:

    Get Four Decades of Magic on kindle or buy the print version? (I may eventually get lazy and just go for kindle, but we'll see)

    This book was a great read, very informative, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I tend to read most everything I can get my hands on relating to Disney and this is a great addition to my library
