    'The Pixar Touch' by David A. Price

    Book Review
    The Pixar Touch (2008)

    By David A. Price


    AN ANIMATED HISTORY
    Reporter David A. Price draws a fascinating portrait
    of the making of a CG-animation behemoth in The Pixar Story

    Book Release 1 Day

    By Steve Daly Steve Daly is a senior writer at EW,
    and also author of EW.com's Money Shot column
    May 16, 2008

    Long before it defined CG-animation excellence with films like Toy Story and The Incredibles, Pixar was a scrappy graphics-software and computer-hardware company, constantly in danger of extinction. Its saviors include cofounder Ed Catmull, who dreamed of being an animator but couldn't draw; driven writer-director John Lasseter, a would-be innovator pushed out of Disney; and deep-pocketed patron Steve Jobs, who held on through years of huge losses. in The Pixar Story, David A. Price, a tough, unsentimental reporter, ferrets out lots of backstage drama from fresh sources, weaving a commendably unvarnished history. B+
