    Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination



    Ok, today I went to the Miami International Book Fair.

    As I was browsing, I found an amazing book called, Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination. Let me just tell you now, it is one of the best biographies of Walt Disney out there!

    Neal Gabler does an amazing job at dictating everything you could possibly want to know about the legendary Walt Disney. He gets his sources from 2 years of searching through the archives at the Disney Studios.

    He covers everything from his life, to his movies, to the parks.

    I highly recommend hit!

    "Neal Gabler's meticulously researched biography, Walt Disney offers the full story (Gabler is the first writer to gain complete access to the Disney archives) of the American icon. Readers will discover the whole story, witnessing Disney's invention of a "synergistic empire that combined film, television, theme parks, music, book publishing, and merchandise." --Daphne Durham (Amazon.com)

    (Oh and I got it signed lol)
